Sam Jenner and Thomas Cornwell a-gardening for me today, and both dined with me on a piece of beef roasted, a piece of pork boiled, a plain bread pudding and greens. Dame Henly and Sally Bridger (Mr Porter’s servant) drank tea with me… It being a very wet evening Sam Jenner stayed chatting with me till near 10 o’clock. In the evening read one of Yorick’s sermons. A melancholy time with me.
