A very quiet day. Much engaged in writing my private letters which kept me from ten until after four o’clock pretty steadily at my pen. I then went out for a short walk. In the evening Mr T E Parker came in and remained until nearly midnight. It was pleasant to converse with him. It is so seldom that I see intelligent and familiar acquaintances from Boston, that the event gives me an agreeable stimulus.
