Saturday 27 October 1660
In London and Westminster all this day paying of money and buying of things for my house.
In my going I went by chance by my new Lord Mayor’s house (Sir Richard Browne), by Goldsmith’s Hall, which is now fitting, and indeed is a very pretty house.
In coming back I called at Paul’s Churchyard and bought Alsted’s Encyclopaedia, which cost me 38s.
Home and to bed, my wife being much troubled with her old pain.
