Crisp et al. in London, England - 8 August, 1715

from The Diary of Dudley Ryder, 1715-1716 , page 71:

Diary entry 8 August 1715 Came to London. Called upon Mr. [George] Smith to lend him some music I promised. He came with me to John’s where met Mr. Witnoom, Jackson, Potter, Crisp, &c. We went at last to the tavern. We were exceeding merry, full of good humour. Mr. Porter sung us some songs. He seems to have good judgement but his voice is very indifferent, it is not clear nor loud.
