Monday. 3d.

Returned to town after some conversation with Abby after breakfast. Received a letter from my father quite pleasant. It is now growing more and more probable that he will be defeated in his re-election and I am therefore disposed to alleviate his mortification by making some effort to please him. At the Office in the afternoon looking over cases for a decision. I dissented from the opinion of the C[hief] J[ustice] at the Moot Court this evening. These meetings are becoming both interesting and profitable by our success in infusing a little spirit into them. A debate afterwards. Richardson and I adjourned from there to a supper of venison which I enjoyed exceedingly. Returned at eleven.
