3 October 1789: Saturday routine

Saturday 3. — This Morning write. My Carriage is in Want of Repair so I am on Foot. Go to the Palais royal. Sit awhile at Club and read the public Prints, then go to dine at the Restaurateur’s. Thence cross over to Hasgill’s Chambers. Find him and Swan together. Propose a Walk, which being agreed to we take a Turn in the Tuilleries. Coming from thence Swan quits us, and we go to the Salon, at entring of which I meet the Marechal de Ségur. View awhile the Paintings, then go to the Palais royal and take a little Lemonade; after which return Home, take Tea, and write. My Stomach is much deranged. This is a cold disagreable Day.
