Thursday. 19th.

Morning at the Office. Reading Law but not with any interest. The multiplicity of subjects distracts my attention and the dryness of detail worries my patience. Walked into Court, found the Supreme Court sitting to hear motions. Afternoon, Adam Smith upon the Colonial System, quite interesting but difficult. Evening, Pope Essays and Epistles.
