Peter Hawker in Alcobaça - 16 April, 1809
from Journal entry, 16 April 1809, page 32:
[W]e repaired to our billet. We were here extremely fortunate in our host, who received us with the greatest hospitality, and, as well as he could express himself, begged that during our residence in his house we would consider every thing it afforded as our own. [...] Although our host was unable to converse with us, he contrived to keep us constantly amused; particularly those fond of music: he played the piano and guitar, and had great taste in singing.
