Wednesday. 18th.

Morning at the Office. Nothing remarkable. Called into the Justices Court to enter my first action this morning. I felt a little puzzled about it but got along, I suppose as others do. Then in the Supreme Court where I listened to an argument until I was called out to see my friend Richardson who paid me a visit. We chatted pleasantly for an hour. Afternoon in Court. A land cause. Evening, at home reading the Disowned. It is very interesting and what is more it has a deep settled influence upon those who are as ambitious as I am, for I find many of its aspirations echoed within in sounds which I recognized as long and deeply cherished.
