Tuesday 8th.

Wrote to my father as usual. George positively departed this morning and I took possession of his Office. But my morning was not fully occupied usefully as much of it was cut up. The elections all turned out very well yesterday. Blackstone. Afternoon, Edwards. And read a part of Hoffman’s Legal Study.1 The luckiness of my situation affects my spirits. Evening at home, Cicero and political economy.
