This, and Company, has left me little liezure hitherto to look into matters which more immediately relate to myself. but finding it necessary, I mean to devote my forenoons to business, while I give the after part of the day to my friends . . . . With this indulgence from my friends, their visits can never be unseasonable . . . ."
