Saturday 13 February 1668/69

Up, and all the morning at the office, and at noon home to dinner, and thence to the office again mighty busy, to my great content, till night, and then home to supper and, my eyes being weary, to bed.

Arlington to Ossory
Written from: [London]
Date: 13 February 1669

Communicates his conversation with the Duke of Ormond upon the coming change in the government of Ireland, - which greatly troubles his Grace. And it troubles the writer, too, as wishing the Duke's satisfaction, and yet being unable to procure it. ... His Grace says that he cannot live in England; ... and, upon the whole matter, the writer knows not how to advise Lord Ossory respecting himself; ... unless he would be content ... to live at Goring, where, he adds, "methinks a little would suffice".

I was looking at the weather information from John Gadbury's diary and am impressed by how little Pepys "talks about the weather." It is a constant topic for most diarists, but he always has something more interesting to write about, bless him!

"The Suppos’d Messiah" vs. J.E.'s true Messiah

cf. motes and beams (KJV Matthew 7:3,4)

The Mote and the Beam is a parable of Jesus given in the Sermon on the Mount[1] in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 7, verses 1 to 5. The discourse is fairly brief, and begins by warning his followers of the dangers of judging others, stating that they too would be judged by the same standard. The Sermon on the Plain has a similar passage in Luke 6:37–42.[2] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mote_and_the_Be…

THE HISTORY OF SABATAI SEVI, The Suppos'd Messiah OF THE JEWS

Sabbatai Zevi (Hebrew: שַׁבְּתַי צְבִי, other spellings include Shabbetai Ẓevi, Shabbeṯāy Ṣeḇī, Shabsai Tzvi, and Sabetay Sevi in Turkish) (August 1, 1626 – c. September 17, 1676[1]) was a Sephardic ordained rabbi from Smyrna (now Izmir, Turkey).[2][3] A kabbalist of Romaniote origin,[4] Zevi, who was active throughout the Ottoman Empire, claimed to be the long-awaited Jewish Messiah. He was the founder of the Sabbatean movement, whose followers subsequently were to be known as Dönmeh "converts" or crypto-Jews.[5] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabbatai_Zevi
