Morning to town. Occupied during the morning in copying some Executors papers for my father, in making a settlement with T. O. Brackett upon George’s Note for One hundred dollars with interest from the third of March which I paid, then went to Hancock Street where I made my arrangements with Miss Oliver and concluded the lease. Ordered Hollis to make some small repair that was required on it and then went to Mr. Foster’s and ordered a paper for them in this way getting through the business. Mr. Curtis called upon me about the expedition to Weston and I fixed Tuesday for it. This consumed the morning and I then rode to Medford. Found Mr. and Mrs. Frothingham and Miss Mary B. Hall at dinner. Mrs. Brooks is sick, and gets no better. I am distressed for the consequence and Abby was evidently much depressed by it. Evening, a Medford party, a thing highly distressing to me, but I got through with it better than I expected. I forced myself through the form of introduction in many cases and so saved myself the trouble of being a post all the evening. But it was fatiguing and did not pay [for] itself.
