Monday. June 2nd.

Returned to Boston this morning with Chardon Brooks. This day was a repetition of last Wednesday, being what is here called Artillery Election. Owing to this I had no way of passing the morning to my { 243 } satisfaction but at last settled down in reading Mr. Brougham’s Speech upon the State of English Law.1 Afternoon. Executive Record and one of Mr. Burke’s Speeches upon American Affairs. Walk with Mr. Derby and evening, Cicero until I fell asleep and found my study useless, when I retired.
1. CFA’s copy of Henry Brougham’s Present State of the Law, Phila., 1828, is in the Boston Athenaeum.
