Monday, 13 July, 1829

It has been said that every day has its pleasures and pains, and to a certain extent it may be correct. i leave you to verify it according to your experience and circumstances under which you may be forced to act. i rode some distance today. Mind much agitated with my prospects in this terrestrial abode. Imagination led far in the disagreeable path of anticipated poverty. Yet I am determined never to give up the ship until forced by unfeeling necessity. I have ovserved today one disposition in my companion which if it continues will be of great importance to us. We purchased a few culinary articles today, and she only wanted such as were necessary, and for a poor man this is of consequence. Mere show should be out of the question.
