Mr. White of Philadelphia son of the late Bishop White, paid me a morning visit— I rode this morning to the Navy Yard, stopping at Miss Casey’s lodgings, to return some English Newspapers which she had lent me— I took a short walk in the afternoon, but finding it from day to day, more difficult to walk, fear that I must henceforth, confine all my bodily exercise, to riding in a carriage. I answered the Letter of Mr. Ellis of Dedham— We commenced in the evening, reading the Life of Johnson.
