The weather is uncommonly fine and the news form America is good. We have great cause to be grateful, and yet I do not think I ever experienced a more steady depression of spirits. This is undoubtedly to be traced to my anxiety about Mary, who does not yet recover her spirits or121 appetite. We now propose the experiment of a change of air. God grant it may meet our hopes. My day passed in preparing draughts of Despatches in advance. Visits from Mr Sohier from America, and a Mr Curtia with a letter from Mr S. B. Ruggles. Mr S. dined here.
