The events described by this diary entry are:

1) Samuel visits the theatre to see a performance of "Clarcilla". A combination

of the annotations on the site and some quick googling shows

that this is a play (not an opera), performed by the theatre company of

Sir Thomas Killigrew, also known as the "King's Company".

2) Samuel calls on his father

3) Samuel visits the Royal Exchange

4) Samuel goes to the Mitre tavern with his uncle William Wight. The

Mitre is typed as a "tavern" which is a subclass of "building"

which is in turn a subclass of "place". The location of the Mitre

is given in the annotations as Fenchurch Street.

Fenchurch Street is modelled as a "thoroughfare" and the location

of the Mitre is given by a "located-on" association.

[the-mitre : tavern = "The Mitre"


[fenchurch-st : thoroughfare = "Fenchurch Street"]

located-on(the-mitre : place, fenchurch-st : route)

5) Samuel and William discuss the fact that Samuel's father has travelled to

the Pepys' farm at Brampton. This implies and event of John Pepys travelling

to Brampton.

6) Samuel and Mr Batersby (also known as John Battersby) the apothecary

discuss Samuel's uncle's haemmoroids (I wonder just how "merry" Sam

had to be to get on to this topic of conversation!).
