1736 August 15 (Sunday). On Mat. 188.8.131.52 and Luk. 19.42. Mr. Dartforth, [Dantforth?] Mr. Chamberlain and Hitty Coddington dined with us. N.B. Isle of Wight Tune Sung p.m. Mr. Samuel Fay went out before the last Singing.
Parkman would later note that Samuel Fay declared that his “chief objections and offence” against Parkman were “what arose from my bringing in new Singing and my wearing a Wigg” (Diary, July 25, 1738).
