Monday. 19th.

Returned to Boston with Mr. Brooks. Received letters from my Mother and John rather of an encouraging nature.1 His marriage is to take place soon, and I am glad of it as it will settle my prospects in that light, so far as temporal affairs go. Called on Mrs. Webster. In the afternoon I went to see Abby at her sister’s and passed the afternoon there. In the evening, attended Moot Court and heard an able argument.2 Supped with Richardson.
1. Both missing.
2. The case involved the technical question of a “Demurrer to the Declaration for omitting the averment in regard to tending what was due on a Note at the place specified” (CFA, Law Miscellanies, M/CFA/17, Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 311).
