Morning at the Office. My head still troubled me a little and continued to do so throughout
the day. Read Blackstone and Law as usual. I find this a perplexing business. Afternoon,
finished Say and read Cicero’s Eighth Oration against Antony principally on account
of my father’s recommendation. The object which he had in view was to explain his
manner of writing, but my suggestions are not weakened by their effect. Evening, The
Spectator. The day was passed on the whole very studiously.
