Monday 7th.

Morning a little later and consequently studied Geography after breakfast. Law as usual. Received a letter from Abby, which I wrote an answer to directly and which occupied me the remainder of the day. Evening Billiards with the family. I heard to day of the death of my good old Master Dr. Ironside of whom I have said much in the commencement of this book. He was the only Instructor I ever had who ever conciliated my affections. A good, mild tempered, kind-hearted man. There are few who would create in me such feelings of regret. But it is the fate of all sooner or late.
