Spitting Backward


January 28, 1661

To the Theatre, where I saw again ‘The Lost Lady,’ which do now please me better than before; and here I sitting behind in a dark place, a lady spit backward upon me by a mistake, not seeing me; but after seeing her to be a very pretty lady, I was not troubled at it at all.
