Friday. 6th.

Morning at the Office and in the Supreme Court. Heard an argument in the case of the N.E. Ins. Company against D’Wolf, which I heard in the trial at Nisi Prius. It was interesting and I took a Note of it.1 The weather cleared up in the afternoon. I went home earlier than usual and looked over a File of my Letters to my Mother written last year. They were exceedingly interesting and I did not cease until I read them through. This occupied until late in the evening, and I did nothing else.
1. CFA’s notes on the case of the New England Marine Insurance Company v. James De Wolf Jr., are in his Law Miscellanies (M/CFA/17, Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 311).
