Saturday...—This Morning write. (…) Go… to the Louvre and take my friend [Mme de Flahaut – AE] to Chaillot. On the Way we do what our Fathers and Mothers had done before our Time. (…) We return and after sitting together a little while I go to Madame de Chastellux. The Countess de Ségur is here who tells me that on Wednesday next Mr. Necker is to go to the Assembly and tell them that upon the first of March there will not be a Shilling in any Chest belonging to the Public. The Dutchess [of Orleans] comes in. The usual Chit Chat. I return Home and take Tea and Medicine. The Weather has not been unpleasant this Day.
