Tuesday. 27th.

Morning foggy with rain. At the Office and in Court. Heard the close of an argument by Mr. Fletcher in which he injured his cause by too much earnestness. George came into my room and passed some time in conversation. We have at last in some measure got over the coldness. But I am determined in future to remain more at my own room. Having found that I can save much time which was formerly wasted. Afternoon, some Chapters of Adam Smith, and in the evening, Boswell. The rain changed to heavy snow.
