Walk'd into Paris in the morning, to the Marquis de la Fayette's; to go with him to
Mr. Jefferson's upon the subject, of the Importation of our whale oil, into this Country.1
I was told the Marquis was gone out of Town, on horseback. Call'd upon Mr. Williamos
and from thence went to Mr. Jefferson's, where I waited till past noon for the Marquis,
but, as he did not come then, I walk'd back again to Auteuil: was very much fatigued
as it was exceeding warm. All the family, but myself dined at the Marquis's, and did
not return till late in the evening.
