Today's entry has the following events modelled:
  • Samuel and Wiilliam Penn travel to Westminster by coach.
  • Samuel does business with Ned Montagu.
  • Samuel meets William Penn at Whitehall
  • Samuel and Penn dine at the 3 Tuns at Charing Cross, and then go on to the theatre for a performance of 'The Jovial Crew'
  • Samuel, Penn and Penn's son (also William and latterly the more famous of the two) dine at Samuel's house.

The diary mentions that Penn the younger is "lately come from Oxford". I wonder if this is because it is the end of term or if it is as a result of his expulsion (he was expelled from Christ Church for being a Quaker). If it is the latter, then it might be quite good to add this as another event.
