Andrew Hamilton writes about a meeting in March…

Thanks to Michael Robinson, we have arranged March 13 at 5 PM at the Hunter’s Head in Upperville, Va., as a time and place to celebrate Sam’s 378th birthday. So far Todd Bernhardt and wife and Rex Gordon have accepted, along with several of my family, Michael and myself. We cordially invite other Pepysians to join us in a venison pasty and a toast to Sam. RSVP to Andrew Hamilton at before Feb. 23 so we can be sure of adequate provender.

So, if you’re able to get there, drop Andrew a line!
