Wednesday. 14th.

The day was mild and rainy, which kept me at the Office employed almost constantly. This may be said to have been a well occupied space of time. The morning in examining some principles of Insurance Law, the afternoon in studying Adam Smith and the evening in reading Mr. Boswell. But upon such exertions, little occurs to remark, excepting that I find my principal difficulty consists in not being able to retain enough of what I read.
