3 May 1741
Dined at Dr Waterlands with Mrs Scott & Madam Warterland at Hackney. Gave man 12d
Going out to eat always involved Thomas tipping the servants, which remained normal until really quite recently. "You make extra work for them" as an elderly relative once said to me.
I think this was Theodore Waterlands, vicar of St Benet Fink (demolished in the 19th century)
