Monday. 1st December.

Morning at the Office and in the Supreme Court. Little or nothing was done however of interest there. I had not much leisure to do any thing else, but in the afternoon made it up in reading my American History. Mr. Eddy, the Clerk of the Corporation, this day effected for me the transfer of the shares of the Middlesex Canal Stock. Nothing else happened of interest. In the evening George came to see me at my Office and we had some pleasant conversation until ten o’clock, when upon attempting to go, we found ourselves locked up in the building. { 317 } This was rather disagreeable as a prospect for the night, but we succeeded in drawing the door open by starting the bolts.
