Thursday 29th.

Morning at the Office, Blackstone. Conversation with George. Went to the Gallery of Paintings and lounged away an hour in examining them. It is rather a pleasant way of passing time, and I was a little dull, owing perhaps a little to the fact that I do not hear from Abby. After dinner, occupied myself in copying Executive Record, finished Voltaire’s Age of Louis 14th, took a walk and in the evening, read part of Cicero’s Oration for Quintius.
