Wednesday 18th.

Morning at the Office and in Court. Three days have been passed in a single case of Leonard Foster against the City. It was so dull I could not stay. Pleas of land are dry things to argue upon. The rest of the morning passed in Law. Afternoon, Adam Smith, Chapter on Colonies. Evening, Pope’s Essay on Man. A style of Poem which does not interest me much. The day spent usefully but not without tedium. I feel the want of good society.
