Rode to Boston in company with Mr. Brooks. Found a letter from my Father in his most agreeable strain which put me in spirits for the remainder of the day. Although the political news was of a nature not to encourage my hopes. The day was passed in reading Law and the evening at the Moot Court after which Richardson and I went to the Boston Coffee House and took a Supper of Ducks and some Champagne which was not good. Returned early.
