Feb. 3, 1797. Friday Morning.

Mrs Inchbald was gone into the City to dinner, so I had to measure back my steps.

“To day I find myself better, and, as the weather is fine, mean to call on Dr Fordyce. I shall leave home about two o’clock. I tell you so, lest you should call after that hour. I do not think of visiting you in my way, because I seem inclined to be industrious. I believe I feel affectionate to you in proportion as I am in spirits; still I must not dally with you, when I can do anything else. There is a civil speech for you to chew.”
