I proceeded to the excellent little inn of Mrs, Osbaldeston at Redbridge, to dress in my best, and join the splendid gala of Captain Colt at Rownam's [sic] house. I then drove on in my carriage, and arrived about half-past five, just as the innumerable host of fashionables were sat down to a banquet similar to that of a lord mayor. The wines flew at an awful pace, and the speeches after dinner were like a meeting in parliament, […] We then had a concert till near eleven, fireworks equal to Vauxhall till twelve under the able directions of Captain Rich, dancing till two, then a gorgeous sitting supper, and a finale with dancing till half-past three, when the carriage came again from Redbridge and took us worn out to our beds at the inn.
