Saturday. 17th.

Morning at the Office, engaged in writing a letter to my Mother. After which I read the first Chapter in the third Volume of Kent’s Commentaries. Afternoon, engaged in a Chapter of Adam Smith upon Rent, which required pretty close attention. Attended the Moot Court in the evening where we had a good argument and pleasant conversation. My case was not decided in my favour.1
