I was later than usual at my Record owing to some arrangements
about taking a bath, and was compelled to omit my Geography, but the remainder of the day was busily employed. Wrote a letter to Abby, and prepared for the reading of Tacitus.
My undertakings for this Summer are to be Grotius and Puffendorf in the Law of Nations,1
Coke Littleton in Law,2
and Tacitus in the Classics. No very small work. God prosper the undertaking.
