As I was getting up this morning I accidentally broke my washing basin and in endeavouring to save it, cut my thumb so badly as to disable me from writing to my father according to my arrangement. It was painful all day but in the morning I occupied myself in my regular reading at the Office and in the afternoon and evening at my room looking out the authorities for the cases just cited in a morning’s note to me by Richardson1 who was so much troubled that he omitted half of them.
