Morning pleasant and have been at leisure during the day. Making arrangements to discharge my dues to Mr. Lash, as today completes the year of my boarding with him. Indeed I have to think of my situation twelve months ago. And my only consolation is in knowing that I am now able to pay all my debts, and if this shall continue to be my fortune through life and leave me enough for contingencies in old age, I will endeavor to be satisfied and live contented.
