Saturday 13 February 1668/69

Up, and all the morning at the office, and at noon home to dinner, and thence to the office again mighty busy, to my great content, till night, and then home to supper and, my eyes being weary, to bed.

Arlington to Ossory
Written from: [London]
Date: 13 February 1669

Communicates his conversation with the Duke of Ormond upon the coming change in the government of Ireland, - which greatly troubles his Grace. And it troubles the writer, too, as wishing the Duke's satisfaction, and yet being unable to procure it. ... His Grace says that he cannot live in England; ... and, upon the whole matter, the writer knows not how to advise Lord Ossory respecting himself; ... unless he would be content ... to live at Goring, where, he adds, "methinks a little would suffice".

I was looking at the weather information from John Gadbury's diary and am impressed by how little Pepys "talks about the weather." It is a constant topic for most diarists, but he always has something more interesting to write about, bless him!
