It is a great pity that Todd Bernhardt takes it upon himself to reveal what is going to happen in the next few weeks. A major delight is the anticipation of what will happen in Sam's life .

Oysters were a staple food for Londoners in Pepys time...
For the advice of mr Forman above oysters are eaten all around the world....usually fresh from the shell and have been so for a long long time ....even before 1913 .

Ed...I would believe that Pepys had an extremely stressful lifestyle at this time in his life. Reasons...
He had a relatively uncertain job and had severe money problems.
He depended on keeping the goodwill of others for his whole living....in particular Montagu .
Montagu was under a cloud and keeping a very low profile in Hitchenbrooke because he had been an overt republican...
England ..in particular London, was in a state of flux ......between Republicanism and possible royalty return .....with possible retribution and religious complications.
All in all very uncertain times .....

If today's crop of scientists were out and about the cold would have been put down to a reduction on CO2 in the atmosphere......burn more fossil fuels !

Wonderful site.! I read some of the diary many moons ago and often lost the thread because of the expressions and vocabulary . ....but with this it becomes a true adventure into a fascinating period by a hyperactive man. My wife has been reading on the site for a long time ....last thing at night in bed on her IPad...and has been levering me to get started ( she is near the end) . She finally succeeded thank goodness. Can anyone advise me how to cut the tags( text details when tapped ) off when using an IPad. I. Find I have to restart the whole site to remove .
