Sunday May 20th.

I was employed in arranging Newspapers and in making up the deficiencies of the week. In my Executive Record and in Voyages. I also wrote to Richardson.1 On the whole was very well occupied, particularly as the evening was included, owing to the going to Church of the ladies. A New and extraordinary incident. News quite deficient and my spirits merely tolerable.
