Winter is again upon us, and I do not welcome it with pleasure.
But it is early to think of a release in this climate. Morning at the Office. I attended a meeting of the Proprietors of the Middlesex Canal at the Exchange. Found a small attendance and no interest taken in it. Returned to Office and finished Austin’s Life of Gerry. Afternoon, Adam Smith upon the Tariff policy. Evening, Boswell fast verging to the last days of Johnson, and Mr. Pickering’s Review of the Cunningham papers.
