Diary 17 October 1828 5 September 1829. My Marriage.1 “What is a man, If his chief good, and market of his time, Be but to sleep, and feed? a beast, no more. Sure, he, that made us with such large discourse Looking before, and after, gave us not That capability and godlike reason To rust fust in us unus’d.” Hamlet. 1.

Titlepage of D/CFA/7, from which the following entries through 3 September 1829 (ending the present volume) derive. See the descriptive listing of CFA’s MS diaries in the Introduction. CFA’s concluding date “5 September 1829” is his own error.
