. This is one of only two entries in Jan. 1759 that bear even an indication of the day
of the week on which they were written, the next fully dated entry being that of 1
Feb. 1759. The January entries have therefore been placed in two groups but with intervals
of space between what may be entries written on different days. A word of caution:
since the pages of the MS
are loose, it is not always possible to tell with certainty what the original order of the entries
. Their order as printed by CFA
is highly arbitrary.
