Outlined Gibbs’ Cervara (in squares.)

At 3 Col. Percy called & sate some time ― very unconcerned of time quâ work: ― I do not like [you] Dr. Fell. ― He is going to Jerusalem: ― wh. of course was the reason for Mrs. C. asking me to meet him tomorrow. ― At 5 went over to Mrs. Forster, & sate awhile. Talk of no end of Earles, & the poor Cortazzi.

Dined alone. Penned out Damascus. ―

No letters: no nothing. ―
