I wonder why Sam mentioned where Will slept?

"For the first fifteen months of the diary Sam usually mentions his parents in tandem..."
Thank you for putting this in perspective, Pauline. I was quite lost.

Sam's house & the Navy
Although Sam constantly refers to "my workmen..."
I really appreciate your description, A. Hamilton. I had been woefully confused and your offering is the best I've ran across so far, even ten years later. Thanks!

Thank you, Terry Foreman; I wondered at the Portuguese mass.

Toast, bread baked before the fire...
Good job, Bill!
I'm curious if the peeping-servant is going to be punished at all.

Was a "mistress" the same then as it is now?

Will, whom I used to call two or three times in a morning...
In most jobs today that would get you fired. Is it normal for people to be so lenient with their servants back then? Is it Will's young age that excuses him? Or our Sam's young age, for that matter?

These annotations are a joy; I'm sure half of Sam's meanings would be lost on me without you all.

I don't know anything about architecture but could the "boring holes" already have been there, maybe from the construction? I sure enjoy reading these annotations; thank you all.

Hi Tonyel, you are not alone. I just started about one month ago. I appeciate your insight.
