Can anyone please shed light on what was going on with Pall (Paulina), Pepys' sister here? It seems odd that, to begin with, she is reportedly stealing from her brother's wife and maid and then, that she becomes a servant in Pepys' household a year later. (Apologies for the potential spoiler but this information appears in the annotation about Paulina). It is unusual to me as well that Pepys does not state his own feelings about this seemingly significant occurrence but references only his father's reaction.
