7th.

I dined at Mr. C. B. Wadström’s with a great deal of company. In the evening I went to the play,1 which can indeed hardly be call’d a play. However, it is as much as this small town can allow. After the play I return’d to Mr. Wadström’s where [with?] all the company.2

1In the margin is a small pencil sketch of two figures standing before a backdrop.

2Laid in between pages two and three of the Diary is the following four-line poem, written presumably in Wadström’s hand:

Monsieur et chèr Ami !

Tout se passe avec le Tems

Le Tems se passe de même

L’Eternité n’a point de Tems

Mon Amitié de meme

a Norrköping en Ostrogothie

CB: Wadström.

le 7me. Janvier 1783
