Wednesday 19 July 1665
Up and to the office, and thence presently to the Exchequer, and there with much trouble got my tallys, and afterwards took Mr. Falconer [L&M have it as “Mr. Falconbr[idge]”. P.G.], Spicer, and another or two to the Leg and there give them a dinner, and so with my tallys and about 30 dozen of bags, —[?? D.W.]— which it seems are my due, having paid the fees as if I had received the money I away home, and after a little stay down by water to Deptford, where I find all full of joy, and preparing to go to Dagenhams to-morrow. To supper, and after supper to talk without end. Very late I went away, it raining, but I had a design ‘pour aller a la femme de Bagwell‘ and did so … So away about 12, and it raining hard I back to Sir G. Carteret and there called up the page, and to bed there, being all in a most violent sweat.
