Returned to town with Mr. Brooks. Found a letter from my Mother in not a bit better spirits than usual. I cannot comprehend what it is makes her so low. It affects mine considerably. Prepared my case for argument. Took a long walk and went to the Moot Court, acquitted myself better than I did last time and was only made aware of the necessity of further practice and exertion.1 Evening at home.


The case involved the question, “Whether a tenant at will is entitled to notice to quit,” and the judge decided against CFA’s argument (CFA, Law Miscellanies, M/CFA/17, Adams Papers, Microfilms, Reel No. 311).
