Attended Divine service at the Chapel in Portland Street. Mr Hutton preached to a very small Audience. At the Communion afterwards there were not more than a dozen. This is a good index of the manner in which all classes of the better favored by fortune leave London during this month. The unitarians are not at all of the aristocratic families. Some of them are wealthy, but the great number of meddling people who make their own independence by some trading pursuits. I went out and paid visits of return to Mess Bronson and Newberry, and to Col Hawley. Afterwards I strolled over Regent’s Park until dinner time. The air was very soft and delightful. Evening quiet. Went on with Stanhope’s life of Pitt.
