Tire patch vs leaving the plug?

I have a brand new rear tire with 800 miles on it and 250 miles from home I got a nail in it. I plugged it and made it home without issue. Now the question is: patch it? Leave it? Or replace the tire?

Thoughts?

My thought is leave it.

I picked up a nail on our way to mid-ohio, got it plugged and rode that tire til the chords showed.

I rode the gap and home on a plug. That was probably not the smartest thing but I also garbage picked a tire in WV and put it on my bike for a rode home which may have been less smart
