Tuesday 25 March 1662
[The Project Gutenberg text, and possibly the 1893 text it’s taken from, omits 25th March 1662. Because it’s a short entry, I’m taking the liberty of copying it from the Latham & Matthews edition, in the hope no one minds too much. P.G.]
Lady Day. All the morning at the office. Dined with my wife at home. Then to the office, where (while Sir Wms both did examine the Victuallers account) I sat in my closet drawing letters and other businesses — being much troubled for want of an order of the Councells lately sent us, about making of boates for some ships now going to Jamaica. At last, late at night, I had a Copy sent me of it by Sir G. Lane from the Council Chamber. With my mind well at ease, home and to supper and bed.
