16th. Saturday.

This morning I went to the Academy and bought some almanacks. After dinner I went with Mr. Artaud to the Post office to subscribe for the French Amsterdam Gazette. We went after that to the Club,1 and return'd home at about nine o'clock. Clear weather.
1. Most likely the English Club, described by Henry Storch as containing about three hundred members and requiring 40 rubles for admission and 20 more for the annual subscription. The Club had newspapers and journals available as well as a “small but choice collection of books” ( Picture of Petersburg , p. 424–425).
