Tuesday. 24th.

Morning at the Office and in Court. Heard an argument upon a Case which was not interesting in itself, but which the difference between the Counsel in the cause made amusing. I do not admire Mr. Rand.1 His is a mind of that narrow stamp which admits impressions out of the mere common line with difficulty. Afternoon, finished Smith and commenced Say’s Political Economy which I propose to take in continuation, but my room was not very agreeable in the high winds of this month. Evening, Pope’s Letters to Wycherley and Walsh.
1. Benjamin Rand, Harvard 1808, had his law office at 5 Court Street ( Boston Directory, 1829–1830).
