Friday. 13th.

Morning at the Office. Agreeably surprised by finding three letters for me from home. My father, my Mother and John.1 Very amusing all of them. Read Kent’s Commentaries as usual. Afternoon, Executive Record. In consequence of some milk which I drank and heat and fatigue of yesterday I felt excessively sleepy and could not read Louis 15th although I attempted it. Took my usual walk and in the evening wrote a reply to John.2 It is so long since we have written that there is a little unavoidable stiffness.
1. The letter from JA2 is missing.
2. Missing.
