only after dinner to the tryall of some
experiments about making of coaches easy. And several we tried; but one
did prove mighty easy (not here for me to describe, but the whole body of
the coach lies upon one long spring), and we all, one after another, rid
in it; and it is very fine and likely to take. These experiments were
the intent of their coming, and pretty they are. Thence back by coach to
Greenwich, and in his pleasure boat to Deptford, and there stopped and in
to Mr. Evelyn's,--[Sayes Court, the well-known residence of John
Evelyn.]--which is a most beautiful place; but it being dark and late, I
staid not; but Deane Wilkins and Mr. Hooke and I walked to Redriffe; and
noble discourse all day long did please me, and it being late did take
them to my house to drink, and did give them some sweetmeats, and thence
sent them with a lanthorn home, two worthy persons as are in England, I
think, or the world. So to my Lady Batten, where my wife is tonight, and
so after some merry talk home and to bed.
