Returned to Boston with Mr. Brooks. The morning was quite pleasant. Morning at the
Office. Called at George’s Office and had some Conversation with him. He is again
relapsing into his foolish notions. How difficult it is to assume new character. Read
Blackstone and finished the first Volume. Copied in the afternoon from Judge Howe’s
Lecture, which I hope in one more tack to finish. Took a walk with Richardson and
attended Moot Court to hear a spirited debate between Chapman and Parker of which
I took full Notes.1
Remainder of the evening at home.
