Evidence

From the diary kept by George Grote for his fiancee, Harriet Lewin (autumn 1818): "Rose at 1/2 past 6 [...] Read Say and Turgot until 12, and put down some remarks on the manner in which accumulation takes place. Neither Say nor Turgot completely satisfy my mind on this subject [...] Dined alone. Read some scenes in Schiller"s ""Don Carlos."" Considered as complete dramas, I think both ""Don Carlos"" and ""Marie Stuart"" are very defective. There is too much mixture of paltry and unimportant intrigue in each [...] There are, however, most masterly single scenes to be found in them [...] After reading this, I practised on the bass for about an hour, then drank tea, and read Adam Smith"s incomparable chapter on the Mercantile System until 11, when I went to bed. "Rose at 6. Read some more of A. Smith on the Mercantile System [...] Dined at 1/2 past 5. Read Don Carlos, and played on the bass for the next two hours, when I went and locked up [the family banking house]; drank tea at 1/2 past 8, and began some more of Say; but I found my mind languid, so that I was obliged to change my study, and took up a dissertation of Turgot, ""Sur les valeurs et monnoies,"" which I read with considerable attention. Went to bed soon after 11."
