Thursday and Friday, 5 and 6 August, 1830

I have seen P. Kirby today. I have described his laziness before, but I now think he is still more opposed to labor than I had apprehended. He is fond of ruing about and is always in search of new objects. Magnified by a vivid imagination to set him free from debt. But he always wants some person to help, someone to perform the labor. Here he generally, nay always, fails. People are not fond to spend their time and industry where there is no prospect of a remuneration. If you expect to be free from want, you must apply yourself to business and if it be necessary to employ help, be sure that you can pay them and there will be plenty to be obtained.
