My time is at last pretty much at my own disposal and I am progressing in the study of my Profession. This morning before breakfast was devoted to writing a letter to my Father upon the subject of my expenses which are likely to be greater than I had apprehended.1
I then called at Miss Welsh’s by request who wished to consult me about my Mother’s picture, wherein I am in favour of alteration. The remainder of the day was devoted to the Office, Selwyn and Cruise. And the evening was occupied in the same manner at home.
