Tuesday 1st of August 1780

This morning at about half after ten Mr. Jennings came here and at about half after eleven Pappa Mr. Jennings and Brother Charles went to take a walk. At about twelve they got back again. A little after twelve My Brother Charles and myself went to Mr. Bordly's lodgings but he was not at home. Mr. Jennings dined at our Hotel. At about four o clock Mr. Lee came to see my Pappa. At Six o clock my Brother Charles and I went to the Play where we saw Les Trois Fermiers and Rose et Colas.1 The actors play but indifferently in this town. At about nine o clock we got home.
