Wednesday the 20th.

This day I went to Pappa's to day. Got back to the school at eight oclock P.M. Nothing remarkable.

Reading a Volume of the Tatler I found something worth copying.1
1. Here follows, on seven and one-half pages of the Diary, the latter part of The Tatler No. 146, originally published on 16 March 1710 (London, 1728, 3:148–152, at MQA). The portion JQA copied, the dream about Jupiter and the Destinies, begins with the third paragraph and continues to the conclusion of the number (same, p. 150–152).
