180 years ago today - Mar 18, 1843

[Joseph Smith]

Saturday, March 18th 1843 Most of the fore noon in the office in cheerful conversation. Closed letter to [James] Arlington Bennet. Laid down on the writing table with /back of the/ head on Law Books saying write and tell the world I acknowlidge myself a very great lawyer. I am going study law and this is the way I study and [then I] fell asleep and went to snoring. This was about noon.

In the afternoon rode out and about 4 [o'clock] took a game of ball east of Main street.
