Morning at the Office. Weather tolerably mild at last. After being engaged some time
in filing papers, I went into Court. The Supreme Court of the State commencing its
Session this day. I heard an argument on a motion for a release of a Prisoner brought
up on Habeas Corpus. This occupied the morning, and I took a Note of it which I passed
the Afternoon in filling out, excepting a short time in which I was occupied in reflecting
upon my argument about Banks which I am engaged to make before the Debating Society.
