Day spent in desultory reading, more particularly in examining a book called The Study of the Law,1 in which there is much which coincides with my own previously formed ideas. Mr. Webster came to see my father and I took the occasion of speaking to him about entering his Office.


GWA’s copy of The Study and Practice of the Law Considered, in their Various Relations to Society, by “a Member of Lincoln’s Inn” [i.e. J. Raithby], London, 1816, is in the Stone Library.
