Thanks, Terry, cleared that one up.Amazing how little Pepys is known in France, in spite of the French connection.
I tried to put this in the encyclopedia, but can't find an entry, although I know it has been discussed before.Listening to French radio (France Culture) yesterday as they revued a French edition of Tomalins book and was struck by their pronounciation of Sam's name and wondered if it was perhaps closer to the way Pepys was pronounced in his time:Two syllables - pip-psie is the nearest I can get, this being the way french treats the letter y (as yee).
About Wednesday 4 April 1660
I see that Gutenburg has re-issued The Diary today, (Wheatley version) presumably with the scan errors corrected.
