Returned to town with Mr. Brooks. Went to George’s Office1
and had much conversation with him. If this change has no other good effect, it may save him, and this is worth the fall. Received a high souled letter from my Father which did me good. Read the last paragraph for George’s benefit.2
The remainder of the day, I was occupied in making up my case for Court which was held in the evening. I argued it to the best of my ability.3
After it, Richardson and I went and had a little Supper of Oysters. Weather still very bad.
