Catching up with three diary entries.

One new use of the event-based structure has turned up in these entries. In the entry for 27th August, Samuel has a discussion with Lady Montague about the preparations Ned Montague is making for a journey to be undertaken by Sir Edward Montague. In particular, that Ned has spent some 5000 pounds on this. This is modelled as a discussion event, the subject of which is a purchasing event where the purchased item is the future journey which is itself represented as a travelling event.

A similar structure is used in the entry for 28th August where Samuel plays a prank on Sir William Penn by forging a letter which purports to be from the thief who stole a tankard from Penn recently. Hence the theft event is made the subject of the corresepondence event that represents the sending of the letter.
