Monday. 18th.

Returned to Boston with Henry Brooks. Received a letter from my father without any news in it. Read Blackstone. Afternoon writing and reading Hutchinson. Conversation with Mr. Davis. Went to the Moot Court and heard a good opinion from Chapman as well as a good argument although a short one.1 At home remainder of the evening.
1. Jonathan Chapman’s opinion was given on the case argued the previous Monday, concerning the eligibility of witnesses. The new case involved the recovery of bank stock (CFA, Law Miscellanies, M/CFA/17, Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 311).
