All appearances to the contrary, that does say “party”, and not panty.

“[Peter] rose early; the morning he gave to business till ten or eleven o’clock at the farthest; all the rest of the day, and a great part of the night, to diversion and pleasure. He took his bottle heartily, so must all the company; for when he was merry himself he loved to see everybody so; though at the same time he could not endure habitual drinkers, for such he thought unfit for business”

General Alexander Gordon, History of Peter the Great, 1718
