Rutson rented the second floor of a furnished house, 7 Half Moon Street, Piccadilly. The first floor was vacant, and I enjoyed it for the year at, I think, one hundred guineas, or a trifle over. Thither I went to live in April, to eat dinners at Lincoln’s Inn, and to make a pretence of studying law. My club was the Union, in Trafalgar Square, where, at that time, we had a very good kitchen, an excellent cellar of wine, and a society of country squires and city men. This club suited my tastes down to the ground; and when, by chance, I dined by invitation at a literary or academical club, I thanked my stars that I did not belong to one.
