Friday. 24th.

Returned to town this morning. Conversation with George. At the Office reading Blackstone which did not give me much information. The weather dark and gloomy. Afternoon, finished the first Volume of Clarendon’s History, comparing it with Hume. The foundation of Hume seems to be good but he frequently throws false lights upon the building. It rained so that I omitted my usual reading in the evening. Miss Susan Tufts very ill.
