This morning is the first which reminds us of the advance of Spring. I went to the
Office early and passed part of my time in the Common Pleas, part at George’s Office
talking with him and my Uncle, and part in study of Law. Afternoon, Say and a visit
from George, who appears to revive under the new prospect of a journey to Washington.
Evening, reading Johnson’s Life of Pope. The day passed pleasantly on the whole, and
my spirits were tolerable.
