A cloudy morn. All my Time seems to roll away unnoticed. I long to study sometimes,
but have no opportunity. I long to be a master of Greek and Latin. I long to prosecute
the mathematical and philosophical Sciences. I long to know a little of Ethicks and
moral Philosophy. But I have no Books, no Time, no Friends. I must therefore be contented
to live and die an ignorant, obscure fellow. A showery Day.
