Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
A bookseller in Westminster Hall, and husband of Ann Mitchell: http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/1101/
From L&M Companion: "Miles and Ann Mitchell were booksellers in Westminster Hall from whom Pepys often bought newsbooks, political pamphlet and the like. They also advertised the sale of lozenges. They kept the first shop in the Hall from c. 1656, and were old friends of Pepys, he and Elizabeth often using their stall as a rendezvous. Their house in St Margaret's parish, appears to have been a substantial one."
