George is upset that his aunt/uncle have not responded yet and threatens to not write again. He describes meeting all the eminent lawyers in Ohio and Henry Clay. He critiques Clay for the price he charges and ultimately says that his high expectations were not met. George wishes to go back to New England and does not want to become a pedagogue. Philander Chase Jr. is feeling better.
