Tuesday the 19th.

I received a letter from one of my schoolmates at Paris.1
Rain'd hard most all day.
Reading in a Volume of the guardian I found something which I will copy.2
1. Letter not found.
2. Here follows, on two pages in the Diary, Pope's 46-line “Prologue to Addison's Tragedy of Cato,” from No. 33, 18 April 1713. This appears in JQA's edition of The Guardian at 1:142–143.
