Friday 29th.

Returned to town with Mr. Brooks in a shower of rain, the wind was very chilly and I was in a very light dress, so that I was extremely apprehensive, I had caught cold. Morning at my new Office. After having removed all the remainder of my things from my other Office. { 383 } I sat down and read Starkie with a great feeling of comfort. I take more pleasure even than I expected in the change. Afternoon Clarendon. Account of the death of the King, together with Hume’s Apology for his Character. Still no letters. The day was cloudy with rain, so that in the evening, I remained at home, conversing with Mr. Fuller who was a visiter and a certain Mr. Williams.1
