Morning is quite warm and pleasant. Have much business for the day, but the remuneration will be small, as more than half are incapable of supporting themselves. But I must not neglect them on that account. Life is sweet to them, as well as the more favored. One thing however, may here be noticed: this class of people insist more strenuously on your constant attention than those are able to pay you for your trouble.
