Morning still cloudy and unpleasant. At the Office. Received a letter from my Mother which was dated the 11th of last month, a circumstance which puzzles me not a little. I have received two letters later which referred to it. Reading Law as usual. First snow storm. Afternoon, Mr. Burke on the Irish Catholics. The evening was again passed at home on account of the Snow. So that Dr. Johnson has come on but poorly this week. I read more of the articles from the New Monthly Magazine.
