Up betimes, 25s. the reckoning for very bare. Paid the house and by boats to London, six boats. Mr. Moore, W. Howe, and I, and then the child in the room of W. Howe.
Landed at the Temple.
To Mr. Crew’s.
To my father’s and put myself into a handsome posture to wait upon my Lord, dined there.
To White Hall with my Lord and Mr. Edwd. Montagu. Found the King in the Park. There walked. Gallantly great.

the bare room
of a temple

my father’s hands
wait in the hall
