Just wondering what the arrangements are to dine in place like The Wardrobe. Is there something always on the fire and Pepys just joins in ---or is he eating at an establishment nearby?

I have to say it was not only tougher to be a kid back then but it was tough to even make it to the age where you could scrounge a minimal living. So this boy was in a sense lucky.

I think Pepys nature while very much part of his times reflects a curiosity for the world and the people in it that is rare even today.
