Pepys pays very little and is now subletting landlord:"...Here came Sir G. Lane by chance, seeing a bill upon the door to hire the house, with whom my coz and I walked all up and down, and indeed it is a very pretty place, and he do intend to leave the agreement for the House, which is 400l. fine, and 46l. rent a year to me between them..."
"Here came Sir G. Lane by chance"
Would Vincent or someone else supply the date of this quotation?
