Sunday 30th.

We all dined at Mr. Bonfeild's. After dinner went to the play. Had Amphitrion and Cartouche.1
1. Probably Molière's Amphitryon, but possibly Jean Baptiste Raguenet, Amphitryon, ou les deux arlequins, a musical parody of Molière's play, n.p., 1713; Marc Antoine Legrand, Cartouche, ou les voleurs, Paris, 1721 (Cioranescu, Bibliographic du dix-septième siècle ; Brenner, Bibliographical List ).
