January 5 1815: Very Ill

Thursday, January 5 (Mary).—Go to breakfast at Hogg’s; Shelley leaves us there and goes to Hume’s. When he returns we go to Newman Street; see the statue of Theoclea; it is a divinity that raises your mind to all virtue and excellence; I never beheld anything half so wonderfully beautiful. Return home very ill Expect Hogg in the evening, but he does not come. Too ill to read.

— Mary Godwin writes in her journal, January 5 1815.
