About Friday 11 May 1660
Regarding the Berties / Bertus... Although L&M say that this pair was "Robert and Edward Bertie, sons of the 1st Earl of Lindsey", Wikipedia says that the 1st Earl and his wife (Elizabeth Montagu) had only one son, Montagu, the 2nd Earl.
Montagu had several children, among them Robert and Edward, so I'm assuming these are the two Pepys mentions.

Thanks for the thanks.
But, while I don't mean to be ungrateful, seeing as this is the start of another decade, let's get things off to a well-behaved start! Please keep annotations about diary entries on topic, and bear in mind that people will be reading them for many years, hoping they'll explain this entry.
Feel free to post anything further about annotations on the Site News post about them: http://www.pepysdiary.com/news/2013/02/15/14007/

Yes, I won't be deleting the old annotations, just the test ones, to keep things on topic about 14th February 1660! Feel free to post general comments about the annotations on the announcement: http://www.pepysdiary.com/news/2013/02/15/14007/
Now, back to the business of the diary...
Phew, good to see it works Bill, thanks! I'll delete these annotations over the weekend, to keep things on topic, but nice to know it's all on track.

Yes, of course, this is all just raw data pulled from Google Analytics. I expect the effects of bots of various kinds skew the results even more than the few people who disable cookies or view the site while frequently travelling!
About Roll Call. Say hello!
I haven't replied to this thread because I barely know what to say. Thank you all for the very kind words.
I just wanted to correct something Max wrote: the many annotations which he very patiently and kindly flagged weren't truncated because of Blogspot; that was on Languagehat's site. The problem here was entirely down to my own carelessness when moving databases!
