27th January 1825

Receivd a letter from Mr Sharp & one from Lord Radstock & answerd his Lordships sending in it the ' Vanitys of Life' a poem — heard the buzz of the black beetle or cockchafer that flyes about in the autumn evenings & early in spring it is different to the brown or summer beetle which is described by Collins

the beetle winds His small but sullen horn

& is not so common.
