D. (Dudley) Ryder in a coffee house, London, England - 2 September, 1715

from The Diary of Dudley Ryder, 1715-1716 , page 89:

Diary entry 2 September 1715 Thence to London Coffee House, where Mr. [George] Smith was playing with Demodore [Daniel De Moivre]. Jackson came in and played a little. I don’t think that he plays so extraordinary well. He has very little judgement and cannot play in time.
