Wednesday. 11th.

Arose in better spirits. Morning at the Office, occupied in reading Law. Kent’s Commentaries, the third Volume, which is more to my taste than the preceding ones. Also, some cases in the Massachusetts Reports. Nothing particular happened and no Clients came in. Afternoon with Abby. I was paid for my low spirits yesterday by having a most delightful afternoon today. Such is the waywardness of human life. George came in and had some conversation. The political troubles. My father is now standing on a point. His attitude is commanding. If the future must be war, let it come. Evening, went with Abby to Mrs. Carter’s and called for her on her return. Commenced reading Pelham, a new Novel.1
1. Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer (afterwards Bulwer-Lytton), Pelham; or, the Adventures of a Gentleman, 3 vols., London, 1828.
