…Mr Porter came and informed me that he had received advice from his tenant in [Essex] that there was 30.13.0 paid to Messrs Margesson and Collison on my account. After dinner Master Durrant and I went to Mr Miller’s… We came home about 8:25; overtook Master Dapp near Edward Russell’s, very much in liquor, but he came home with us.
