Adams Papers



Attended meeting all day. Mr. Burr, preach’d two very good sermons. Dined at Mr. Dana’s, in Company with Mr. Parsons of Newbury-Port: a man of great wit, as well as of sound judgment and deep learning.1

I was at Mr. Wiggles worth’s in the evening with Beale; but Peggy was not at home.

The weather has been very warm this day. The thermometer was at 83.

1After graduation, JQA studied law with Parsons in Newburyport.
