    Excerpt from The AthenŠum, Vol. 1: A Magazine of Literary and Miscellaneous Information (Published Monthly); Containing, General Correspondence, Classical Disquisitions, Account of Rare and Curious Books, Memoirs of Distinguished Persons, Original Poetry; January to June, 1807 Some curious notices of the different hours kept by different classes in society at that period, may be derived from these papers. It: are informed by the Spectator, that coffee-houses were frequented by shop-keepers from six in the morning and that the students of law made their appearance in them, in their night-gowns. About eight. Fine ladies were even then sufficiently fond of their beds. The lady who sends her journal to the Spectator is represented as taking cho colate in bed, and sleeping after it till ten, and drinking her bohea from that hour till eleven. Ller dinner hour is from three to four, but she does not sit up later at a card-party than twelve. On the other hand, the citizen out of trade, whose journal is also given in the same work, rises at eight, dines at two, and goes to bed at ten, when not kept up at his club. Probably those hours do not much differ from those of a retired citizen at present,at his box in Highgate or Hornsey. It deserves remarking, that the custom, now so prevalent, for our mercantile and professional men to keep a country house or lodgings a few miles from London, has much conduced to restoring early morning and evening hours. It is usual for such persons and their families to rise in time for a breakfast at eight, in order that the master may take the round of his garden and little domain before he sets off for his daily business in town. He returns to a late dinner, after which he is little inclined to stir abroad, but spending a domestic evening, he goes to rest in good time. By this reg tlar course of life, both health and morals, I doubt not, are much benefited. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
