This forenoon I went and took a walk with Mr. Artaud and two of the young gentlemen from Mr. Rimberts in the summer garden. Mr. Artaud and Mr. Montréal went into the country to dine. Mr. Artaud return’d at about 6 o’clock P.M. Receiv’d a letter from Mr. Thaxter.1 Fine weather all day.
1. No letter to JQA has been found. On this day Dana actually received two letters from Thaxter, one enclosed inside the other, and dated 21–27, and 31 Aug. (MHi:Dana Papers).
