Friday. 26th.

Morning pleasant. At the Office, reading the Massachusetts Reports, as usual. I have not seen George for more than a week. We have had a slight difference. Afternoon, Mr. Burke on the French Revolution. My trunk has at last arrived from Washington. It contains the Volumes of Burke, the Shirts and all my Mother’s papers. It came open, whether intentionally or not, I cannot say. In the evening, read Dr. Johnson’s Preface to his English Dictionary which I admire very much. It pleases me more than any of his writings I have yet read.
