I rode to Boston this morning with Mr. Brooks. Our conversation various, but not interesting.
At the office all day very studiously disposed. But in the afternoon Mr. Webster came
in and conversed with his Students in a very condescending manner. He discussed English
politics and his ideas upon that subject were, as upon all, very luminous although
not very striking as to novelty. I was much gratified however. In the evening, Mr.
Denny, who is a fellow boarder, and I walked to the Theatre in Federal Street.1
Performances were School for Scandal and One hundred Pound Note.2
Acting barely tolerable.
