Returned to Boston. Found a letter from my father, which was short but pleasant. Morning occupied in reading Blackstone, as usual. Afternoon, commenced Hutchinson’s History of Massachusetts.1 Took a walk. The evening was delightfully mild and clear. Went to the Moot Court but heard no arguments, so that after a short conversation with some of the young men, I returned home, where I commenced Cicero de Officiis, after which I wrote Executive Record. On the whole a busy day.


There is a copy of Thomas Hutchinson’s The History of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, 3 vols., London, 1765–1828, in the Stone Library.
