Jeremy Bentham in Brompton, Kent? - between late March, 1780 and early April, 1780

from Letter from Jeremy Bentham to Samuel Bentham, 30 March–4 April 1780, page 404:

I have been passing my time very comfortably at Brompton; more so perhaps than any time I ever spent there before mixing exercise business and amusement. On horse-back every day between 7 and 9: between breakfast and dinner employ’d as you may imagine: between dinner and tea, Chess, Music or Bergman, about half an hour or ¾ before Tea commonly a game at Cricket with Joseph,13 in which we were frequently joined by his father: after 10: Chess or Music.
