✹ About Thursday 1 October 1663 Jonathan V on 2 Oct 2016 • Link I for one would love to know _how_ he bought the eels. Was it a street vendor? Did he go through the Fishmongers' guild ... market? Maybe he wants to eat them the next day for dinner, because he doesn't mention eating them that night, yet seemed so proud of getting them. Remember, their big meal was dinner - lunch. I'm not sure he bought them for that night's dinner (supper).
