Wednesday. 6th.

Morning rainy and unpleasant. Rode to Boston and attended Court all the morning. Mr. Webster closed on the part of the Plaintiffs. His argument was an excellent one and to me quite conclusive, but it was not so much methodized and digested as those I have generally heard from him. Rode to Medford to dinner and passed the afternoon and evening in conversation respecting many interesting subjects which must shortly press themselves to my attention. I do not feel encouraged about them.
