May 9, 1750

1750 May 9 (Wednesday).  But especially this, which is very warm — the sun burns as in Summer.  Finish’d Secret History of Europe[1] Part I, which is volume I.

[1]The editor has not located a record of a work with this title.  There are, however, a number of “secret histories” of specific reigns, etc.  [Additional note: This may have been John Oldmixon, The Secret History of Europe.  Shewing that the Late Greatness of the French Power…Treachery and Corruption of the Ministers Abroad… (London: Printed for the Booksellers of London and Westminster, 1712).]
