Monday. 22d.

Rode to town this morning. At the Office in the morning and afternoon, reading at home on account of the unpleasant weather. It rained violently at night. I attended the Moot Court and heard the cause argued which I was to decide. Richardson and Withington were both confused by a first attempt.1 After we had adjourned, the former of the two and I talked at the Exchange. Returned home in a violent rain.
1. The case concerned the dower rights of a widow. John Hancock Richardson { 176 } appeared for the plaintiff; O. H. Withington for the defendant. CFA’s ruling on the case is preserved in his Law Miscellanies (M/CFA/17, Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 311).
