About Roll Call. Say hello!

Phil Gyford  •  Link

I haven't replied to this thread because I barely know what to say. Thank you all for the very kind words.

I just wanted to correct something Max wrote: the many annotations which he very patiently and kindly flagged weren't truncated because of Blogspot; that was on Languagehat's site. The problem here was entirely down to my own carelessness when moving databases!

For the record, I've corrected the "640l." to "40l.", which seems like the correct figure.

Stan, I'm afraid I won't be organising any other events, sorry. If anyone else would like to then I'm happy to post an announcement on the site for them.

To be honest, I don't know. I need to find somewhere convenient and suitable that can accomodate 20 people for lunch on a Saturday first.

Thanks for the corrections folks - I've corrected the link to Branford from pointing to Stockings (a surreal but surprisingly small numerical error) and added a link from "my Lord".

About Tuesday 2 March 1668/69

Well caught folks! I'd found it strange that Sam kept referring to Tom as "boy" when he was planning marriage, but I'd assumed it was habit. I had a look through the L&M Index entry on Servants and, yes, there is another boy! Jack, a footboy, arrived from Impington on 4th November 1668: http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1668/11/04/

I'm going to go back through entries between then and now and correct the references.

Also, this is what we currently list for the Pepys household: http://www.pepysdiary.com/background/people/samue… I'm not sure that Bridget and Susan (b) have been reported as leaving?
