12th. Thursday.

This day I din'd with Mr. D and Mr. Artaud at Mr. Rimbert's. Borrow'd of Mr. Peyron two volumes of Piron's works.1 In the evening Mr. Artaud went to the Clubb. Mr. D went and took a ride in the afternoon. Took a walk upon the quay after supper. Pretty good weather all day. Mr. D receiv'd a letter from Holland.
