Thursday. 18th.

Morning passed as usual with my Mother. She seemed tolerably well today. In the afternoon, wrote a letter to Abby which occupied me pleasantly the whole time until dinner. This took up pretty much the whole day, and I only read a few pages of Burke. John passes his time pretty much in shooting. The rest of the family in their rooms. A singular disposition among us which renders absurd any attempt at society. Evening with my Mother.
