I dined once with the Portuguese, and have given a brother of Tomasin's three fl. worth of engravings. Herr Erasmus has given me a small Spanish mantilla and three men's portraits. I took the portrait of Herr Niklas Kratzer, an astronomer. He lives with the King of England, and has been very helpful and useful to me in many matters. He is a German, a native of Munich.
I also made the portrait of Tomasin's daughter, Mistress Zutta by name. Hans Pfaffroth gave me one Philips fl. for taking his portrait in charcoal. I have dined once more with Tomasin. My host's brother-in-law entertained me and my wife once. I changed two light florins for twenty-four st. for living expenses, and I gave one st. t&k&d to a man who let me see an altar-piece. August 19.
