About Sunday 1 April 1660
The diary of Ralph Josselin is worth a look. It runs contemporaneously with Sam's diary, but is years longer. The man was a little too effusive with his devotions to God, but he was, after all, vicar of Earls Colne in Essex for many years. Not as detailed or interesting as Sam's observations, but an interesting insight into rural English life of this period. His details concerning prices of everyday commodities are fascinating.

I did read the entire nine volumes some years ago, maybe that's where I saw the juicier bits.
Cannot understand why the more risque passages are missing this time around. I'm sure they were included in the previous postings.
