Wednesday. 16th.

Arose late and found myself suffering with stiffness in consequence of my yesterday’s labour. Went to the Office but did nothing with spirit. Read a little of Stearns and then went up and dined with Chardon Brooks with whom I spent an hour after dinner. Then to the Office. Read a portion of Lady Morgan’s Italy.1 Evening at Edward Brooks’ for the first time. Quiet evening and supper.
