I wished very much that the Sixth Dinner should not be forgotten, & therefore proposed that it should be held as nearly as usual as circumstances would permit which was agreed to. It was held on the 2d Play Night Decr 12th /44 at Gingers. Six Town Boys only attended. And although I fear it will prove of little use, except observing it as a custom, yet if managed with care it certainly can do no harm. On account of the death of the Princess Sophia the first Play Night (of the Eunuchus) was postponed from Monday the 9th to Wednesday the 11th the 2d Night being on the Thursday.

I may here observe that this Play was a very good one, & brought a very fair cap also several ambassadors & persons of that description.
