Friday. May 1st.

The morning was not by any means such as to merit the character which poets give of the month. Returned to town with Abby who came in to look at a house which is offered to her. This looks really like marriage. I intended going to see it myself but was too late. Read a little law but did not feel perfectly well. After dinner, read Clarendon. Mr. Fletcher had some conversation with me in which he asked me to contribute to the American Jurist, a law publication here, a compliment which flattered me though I felt that I did not deserve it. Evening read the Spectator. My spirits have become very good again.
