Wednesday. April 1st.

Morning at the Office. In Court for a short time but the case did not instruct me, so after a short conversation with George, I returned to read Blackstone. I feel restless, and troubled at knowing Abby is in town and not seeing her, but I do not know how to go and trouble the family. Afternoon, much interested in the Chapters of Say upon the exclusive system, though not convinced. Took a short walk with spirits only moderate. Evening, Pope’s Correspondence with Swift.
