Sunday 9 March 1661/62

(Lord’s day). Church in the morning: dined at home, then to Church again and heard Mr. Naylor, whom I knew formerly of Keye’s College, make a most eloquent sermon. Thence to Sir W. Batten’s to see how he did, then to walk an hour with Sir W. Pen in the garden: then he in to supper with me at my house, and so to prayers and to bed.

"walk an hour with Sir W Penn"
Wish we knew what they talked about - there is a great deal going on at the moment, such as the forgery problems, could have been most interesting.

My message prior to the one above seems to be lost: I was wondering about Warrington speaking of 'Caius College' insted of Keye's College

Caius College

'Caius' (at least, in this context) is still pronounced "keys" and not in the Roman fashion as (approx.) "Cai-us".

".Caius College." Oh! how we doth love to fowl up the visitors and other out of towners.

and see Wim in the text it doth say why, [there also be cross keys in the local area.]
"and then re-founded in the sixteenth century by John Keys; the College is referred to as Caius (pronounced Keys)"

Ah, Keys founded the place; I could never figure out how anyone did manage to find 'Keys' in 'Caius'.
