Just to say that I enjoyed a guided visit to the Pepys Library, Cambridge last week. Great to see Sam's books in their original bookcases. One volume of the diary is on display, open at a random page in March...forget which year. Very feint writing....would recommend a visit! Book a place first...

I'm amazed that Sam just casually met the King whilst strolling in the Park..also surprised at so much activity, formal business and otherwise, on a Sunday. I thought everyone went to church in those days and nothing much else happened?

There is an alley in London, not far from where Sam's house was, called French Ordinary Court.

I'm confused by today's timings. Sam eats at an ordinary at noon, then after much business, goes home at noon and shortly after goes to bed. The second 'noon' must be an error?
