Continuation of fine weather to pay us for our rainy month. Morning at the Office
reading Kent’s Commentaries and examining the doctrine of Calvin’s case, in Coke’s
reports and a case in Cowper, in order to reply to the last letter of my father.1
Tolerably occupied. Afternoon, Executive Record, finished my Novel and was engaged
in arranging my documents of the last Session. Evening, a walk around the Common,
moon very brilliant.
