Fine day. Office. Time as usual. Evening at home.

I have little or nothing new to record this morning. My town life is now so very regular that a Diary suffers much from the monotony. At the Office I have now finished all that I had to do and today sat down to read the Chapter upon currency in Sismondi’s valuable work upon Political Economy. He leans much against credit. Read a hundred and twenty lines of Hecuba during the hour before dinner.

Afternoon, resumed Menzel who does not increase in my esteem as I go on. Evening at home. Mr. Brooks came in and passed a short time. He returns to his town residence today. Finish Gallatin and Ganilh.
