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.
