Friday, 29 August, 1828

Morning cloudy. I have been occupied during the day. I have observed in this country that there are many people who are wealthy and have no conveniences around them, not even a comfortable bed, table, or house, and all their barns and outhouses are indications of the same parsimoniousness. Now, I do not understand why we should want riches if not for our use in such things as our comfort may require. I do not recommend extravagance or superfluity. No, these I am opposed to. But just for our necessary comfort.
