Random Sequence: matutinal

"Then came upon the scene of matutinal industry the invaluable Burley, to assume his share of house-wifely cares."
--Marion Harland, "Taking Boarders for Company", in Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine, November 1864

(I found a bound copy of several issues of Godey's in my basement and have been flipping through the dusty pages.)

matutinal (adjective) = of or relating to the morning

I usually go for a long walk in the morning, on my way to the train. You might call in my matutinal constitutional.
