✹ About Sunday 20 May 1666 Mary K on 31 Jan 2018 • Link Has Samuel encountered another "out of hours" customer at Betty Martin's Westminster place today? Sunday observance regulations with regard to day-to-day activities were not relaxed after the Commonwealth period, so Betty's normal drapery business can hardly have been open to trade today and I suspect Samuel would have mentioned having encountered another man at her premises if that had been the case. Perhaps she has been a little too free (boastful?) about mentioning others of her gentleman customers and this has displeased him. If she gossips about them perhaps she gossips about him, too.
