I dined at Mr. C. B. Wadström's with a great deal of company. In the evening I went
to the play,1 which can indeed hardly be call'd a play. However, it is as much as this small town
can allow. After the play I return'd to Mr. Wadström's where [with?] all the company.2
1. In the margin is a small pencil sketch of two figures standing before a backdrop.
2. Laid in between pages two and three of the Diary is the following four-line poem,
written presumably in Wadström's hand:
Monsieur et chèr Ami !
Tout se passe avec le Tems
Le Tems se passe de même
L'Eternité n'a point de Tems
Mon Amitié de meme
a Norrköping en Ostrogothie
le 7me. Janvier 1783
