Tuesday 6th.

Morning at the Office, and in the Court of Common Pleas. I was this day admitted to practice as An Attorney in this Court. May it be of service to me! and may my resolutions hold out to make the best of every thing that I can do. For indolence is not my wish and law business is within the reach of the most common abilities. Perseverance conquers all things. Settled my accounts with Forbes and Watson, my principal bills. My father sends me no remittance. Afternoon, Mr. Burke’s Pamphlets on French Affairs. Evening, Dr. Johnson. The weather was foggy but had moderated very much.
