Monday. 23rd.

Morning at the Office, engaged in examining my Papers for some years past and destroying many of them. I do this in order to arrange the remainder for any future contingency. In reading my brother George’s letters I saw much which reminded me forcibly of by-gone days. Afternoon, Adam Smith. Evening, Pope. Weather excessively cold. The Winter does not relax.
