[From the 2 January 1660 entry] Pepys constantly visited “Will’s” about this time; but this could not be the famous coffee-house in Covent Garden, because he mentions visiting there for the first time, February 3rd, 1663-64. It was most probably the house of William Joyce, who kept a place of entertainment at Westminster (see Jan. 29th).
This text comes from a footnote on a diary entry in the 1893 edition edited by Henry B. Wheatley.
