Evidence:
'In the [?] read principally the papers in the "Adventurer" and Rogers' "Pleasures of Memory"; thought less of the papers in the "Adventurer" than I had done formally, i.e. forty years ago or more, and less than I had been led to expect of Rogers. Went to bed about one, after beginning "Spanish Grammar".'
