Samuel Pepys in London - 13 August, 1668

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 13 August 1668, page 937:

Up, and Greeting comes and there he and I tried some things of Mr. Lockes for two flagelettes, to my great content; and this day my wife begins again to learn of him, for I have a great mind for her to be able to play a part with me... [A]t night... made my wife sing and play on the flagelette to me till I slept with great pleasure in bed.
