Final entry for November. The following events are modelled for 30th November 1661:

  • Samuel works on legal matters with Lewis Phillips and Dr. John Williams at the Temple. I have assumed that this work is to do with Pepys' Chancery bill against Tom Trice and so have made that the subject of the working-event.
  • Samuel dines at the Wardrobe.
  • Samuel travels home from the Wardrobe.
  • Pepys works at the Navy Office.
  • Pepys, Batten and Cocke drink a bottle of sack at the Navy Office.
  • Pepys returns home from the Navy Office.

The monthly roundup will go up soon - it comes out at 3.3 meg of XTM (yikes!). Watch this blog!
