22 November 1789: Ladies of Bretagne & Busy Necker

Sunday 22. — This Morning write a little. Mr. Richard calls upon me. Some other interruptions. Read. Dress and go to Club. Take Mr. Short up and we go together to dine with the Count D’Estaing. A very good Dinner and a small Company. Two Ladies of Bretagne; by saying handsome Things of their Province they seem prepossessed favorably. This is natural enough. After Dinner call at Mr. Necker’s. He is so much engaged that I tell him I will take another Opportunity to speak to him. Go to the Louvre. We make up our last Evening’s Difference and I stay till after eight, then call at Madame de Chastellux’s. She is gone to Mad[am]e de Ségur’s, the Marechal being confined by the Gout. Return Home and write till late. This Day not very pleasant.
