Two more entries posted today.

In the entry for 23rd November 1661 the following events are modelled:

  • Samuel and Elizabeth travel to Westminster. We are not told the method of travel.
  • Elizabeth visits her father.
  • The couple return home (we are not told what Samuel did while Elizabeth was at her father's).
  • Samuel works at the Navy Office.
  • Samuel and Peter Pett travel to Cheapside by coach...
  • ...where Samuel meets with the portait painter Savill.
  • Samuel dines at the Wardrobe.
  • More work at the Navy Office.
  • Samuel, Williams Penn and Batten and George Cocke drink and play cards at Samuel's house. This is modelled as two separate events - a recreation event and a drinking event that overlap.
  • William Penn dines with the Pepys.
  • Samuel also tells us that he has sent a chine of beef to William Wight as a gift. This is modelled as a gift-event.

For 24th November 1661, the following events are modelled:

  • Samuel and George Cocke attend church at St. Clements Eastcheap. The sermon is given by Josias Alsop.
  • Samuel and George Cocke go for a drink at the Sun tavern on Threadneedle St.
  • Samuel visits Lady Jemima Montagu at the Wardrobe and while there has dinner. This is modelled as a visiting event with a dining event occurring during it.
  • Samuel visits Jane Turner, who we are told is ill. The visit is modelled as one event and the illness as a separate event starting before this day.
  • Samuel drinks with John Young and Daniel Rawlinson at the Mitre.
  • Samuel dines with William Batten.
  • Samuel receives an invitation to dinner from William Wight. As Pepys makes it obvious that this is a result of the gift he made the previous day, I have added a cause-result association between the gift event and the correspondence event for the receipt of the invitation.

The entry for 22nd November 1661 seems to involve a lot of financial transactions. Presumably such transactions occur quite frequently without mention, but in this entry Pepys gives us some idea of the costs of his life-style. The events modelled are:

  • Dinner at the Dolphin with William Batten & family and George Cocke and his wife.
  • A performance by an unamed group of musicians for the diners.
  • A payment of 40s made to the musicians for their services. In this case, I have treated the performance event above as the item purchased. As in previous instances, the purchase price of the item is attached to the item using an occurrence.
  • A payment of 4l. for the dinner. The recipient of this money is not specified.
  • Samuel travels to the Temple by foot.
  • Samuel pays 30s. for legal advice from John Fountaine. The advice (the thing purchased) is modelled as an item.

Also in this entry a new maid, Sarah, is hired by Elizabeth Pepys, This office-holding event is modelled in the pepys-diary-people.ltm topic map.
