Friday 17th July 1846

“Had bread and cheese dinner at the Coach and Horses, York Street, Westminster, first time, adjoining the ancient almshouses in that street dated 1577, from the tap room of which I had a capital view of the back premises and gardens where was some of the inmates walking, all old widows of the parish of St Margaret Westminster, the eldest of whom was 96 years of age. Purchased engraving ‘Death of General Wolfe’ by Woollett, framed and glazed, dated 1776, at the Half Moon, Holywell Street, Strand, for a florin.”
