Called at Dr. Welsh’s agreeably to request and conversed some time with Miss Harriet. Then to the Office where I wrote a letter to my father although none had been received from him this week. One came from my Mother this morning full of John’s affair. This filled up the time usually devoted to law. In the afternoon I copied Ex. Record as usual and read some numbers of Novanglus and Masstts. Then a walk and evening, Voltaire’s Louis 14th.
