Friday 8th of September 1780.

Nothing very remarkable to day.

Reading another Volume of the Spectator I found this which I shall take down.1

1Here follow, on about four pages in the Diary, an allegory beginning, “There were two Families,” which JQA cites as coming from “Spectator Vol 3d. Page 62–63–64.” This appeared in The Spectator No. 183, 29 Sept. 1711 (ed. Bond description begins The Spectator, ed. Donald F. Bond, Oxford, 1965; 5 vols. description ends , 2:222–223).
