Went in the afternoon to Mr. Rimberts with Mr. Artaud to borrow Domino's1 for the mascarade of tomorrow. Went to the shops. Anniversary of her Majesty's coming to the Throne.


A domino is a loose cloak with attached half-mask worn by those at masquerades who chose not to go as particular characters. The word sometimes signifies only the mask itself ( OED).
