Monday. 24th.

Morning at the Office. Walked again to the Middlesex Canal Office, again to be disappointed. Returned and busied myself reading Law. No note from Abby nor any letter from home which surprised me and had no good influence upon my spirits. I occupied myself notwithstanding as much as I could during the day. Walked up to George’s to see him in the afternoon, nothing remarkable. Evening at the Office much amused with the second part of Percy’s Reliques of Ancient Poetry, containing those ballads connected with Shakespear.
