Tuesday. 19th.

Wrote a letter to my father. Beautiful Morning. Blackstone at the Office. Did not see any of the Brooks family today. Afternoon, Hutchinson. Conversation with Mr. Hobart on politics, there being some resolutions before the Legislature of the State. Evening at home reading Cicero and the Preliminary Treatise of the Library of Useful Knowledge, an excellent work carried on by a society of gentlemen in London.1
1. Presumably the eight-page prospectus of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, published in London in 1825 (BM, Catalogue ).
