Returned to town. The weather which hitherto has been warm has now suddenly changed
to cold. No letter from my Father. Read Blackstone. Afternoon, Hutchinson. E. G. Prescott
informed me that there was a report in town that Ward Brooks was lying very ill at
Baltimore. In consequence of it I thought it my duty to call at Mrs. Frothingham’s.
They had heard of it. This may have a material bearing upon my own plans. Walked with
Richardson and on our return attended the Moot Court. Davis delivered a very able
argument. Took an Oyster Supper afterwards.
