Tuesday 10th.

Morning at the Office. Occupied in writing a letter to my father although I received none from him as usual this week. Read some Chapters of Kent which gave me very little information and had some conversation with George. Afternoon engaged in copying Executive Record. This is fatiguing but it is a work which I engaged to do and for which I have been paid in advance. Then passed an hour in reading the age of Louis 15th. After which a walk until tea time. Finished a novel in the evening and made an abstract of Michaux on some kinds of trees.1
1. JQA’s copy of André Michaux’s The North American Sylva, 3 vols., Paris, 1819, is in the Stone Library.
