Excerpt from A Calendar of the Inner Temple Records, Vol. 3: 12 Charles II. (1660)-12 Anne (1714)
In 167 I the king and the duke again honoured the treasurer with their presence on Candlemass day, on which occasion the hall was again arranged for their reception, and a performance of The Com mittee, a comedy by Sir R. Howard, was given for their entertainment by the players of the king's house. The reader's feast of 1661 was the last of the great entertainments chronicled by Dugdale or by any later historian. Other festivities were honoured by the presence of kings, queens, and great officers of state, but they were of a more modern type and were wanting in those picturesque details which delight the artist and the antiquary.
