Did not rise until late this morning and did not pay so much attention to philosophy as usual. Morning at the Office. I propose to obtain 228some knowledge of the law of real actions and am therefore embracing a considerable field. Read some Chapters of Reeves much of which had escaped my memory. Went to Medford with Mr. Brooks. Family much as usual. Passed the day in conversation with Abby, and in reflection. Evening also without any thing remarkable.
