Monday 12th.

Returned to town. Office, found letters from both my parents. That from my Mother in better tone than usual. Her spirits seem to have gained a little elasticity. My own far otherwise. Morning, Blackstone at the Office. Went again in the afternoon for the sake of the fire, read some of Bolingbroke. The idea of a Patriot King. My mouth troubles me very much. At home all the evening.
