Monday. 23rd.

Morning at the Office and in Court. The Judges passed the morning in delivering opinions upon Cases, some of which were tolerably interesting and all of them seemed to be reasonable and sound. I was called out to make a small Writ in the way of my business. There is something encouraging in this to one in progress. Afternoon, reading Adam Smith, finished his Chapter on Taxes. My room was hardly tenable owing to the wind and consequent smoke. Evening, finished the Disowned, and a volume of Pope’s Works.
