Morning at the Office. George went positively this morning and left his affairs with me. I commenced making some arrangements to repair that Office in order to go into it.1 Did not pass the time very usefully. In Court a short time. Afternoon. Continued Clarendon and in the evening the Spectator. The East Winds have set in as usual and are exceedingly disagreeable.

CFA planned to abandon his office at 10 Court Street and to move into a little room adjoining GWA’s office at 23 Court Street, which, however, had to be painted and repaired (CFA to JQA, 6 April 1829). CFA hoped the new arrangement would save money.

Morning at the Office. Read law as usual. Nothing remarkable occurred and I was again somewhat dissatisfied with my way of passing it. My mind has become a little distracted and not quite so able to study as it was in the autumn. At one o’clock I went to Medford. The weather very cold and chilly. Found the family as usual. Nothing to notice. Mrs. Brooks much better and downstairs. Evening pleasantly passed.
