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 Chapmanā€™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).
