Friday 4th.

Morning occupied in reading. At the office, Blackstone, but was very much annoyed by the pinching of a new pair of boots. George got some letters from Washington with but little in them. Afternoon at the Office copying a Lecture as usual. Evening at home, commenced Middleton’s Life of Cicero which I have obtained at last1 and copied a portion of Executive Record.
1. CFA’s copy of Conyers Middleton’s The Life of Marcus Tullius Cicero, 2 vols., London, 1824, is in the Stone Library. Among JA’s books in the Boston Public Library are two of the three volumes of Middleton’s Cicero, London, 1755 (Catalogue of JA’s Library, p. 167).
