The events modelled for 25th October 1661 are:

  • Samuel goes to Whitehall Palace. We are not told how or for what reason, so only a travelling event is modelled.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth dine with Jemima Montague at the Wardrobe.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth attend a performance of 'Love and Honour'.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth meet Elizabeth Pearse and Mrs. Clifford in the street.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth walk home via George Hunt's shop where Sam checks on the repairs to his lute.
  • Samuel chastises Will Hewer for showing a lack of respect to him and his wife.

For 26th October the modelled events are:

  • Henry Mordaunt and George Carteret visit William Penn and Samuel at the Navy Office.
  • Samuel and William Penn attend a performance of 'The Country Captain' at the Theatre Royal.
  • Samuel receives news of the death of Robert Slingsby. The death is modelled as one event and Samuel's receipt of the news as a separate event.
  • Samuel and William Penn drink at the Mitre.

For 27th October:

  • Samuel attends church at St. Olaves where he and Penn and Batten discuss Slingsby's death.
  • Samuel dines at home.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth attend church at St. Olaves.
  • Samuel and Elizabeth dine with William and Mary Wight.

Finally, for 28th October:

  • Samuel works at the Navy Office.
  • Samuel dines at home.
  • Samuel retrieves his repaired lute from George Hunt, paying 29s. for it. This event is modelled as new annotations on the original repair event created for 9th October 1661. We add the end date for the repair, an occurrence recording the price as 29s., and add a participation association that has George Hunt playing the role of 'repairer'.
  • Samuel, Robert Ferrers and a friend of Ferrers' go to a performance of Argalus and Parthenia at the Theatre Royal.
  • The three men then go drinking at the Ringo Alehouse.
  • Samuel purchases a belt from a belt-maker that he sends for from the alehouse.
