23. Pass’d the day principally in paying and receiving visits— I called on Mr: Burr, and also on Commodore Preble, but did not find the latter— We went with the Ladies to Peale’s Museum— Saw his Mammoth Skeleton, which is incomplete, and which I believe to be a moderate sized elephant— I dined with Mr: EwingMr: Charles Nicholas came in after dinner— Spent the Evening, with Mrs: Adams at Dr: Rush’s.
