Samuel P., age 27, English Channel


This morning sending a packet by Mr. Dunne to London. In the afternoon I played at ninepins with Mr. Pickering, I and Mr. Pett against him and Ted Osgood, and won a crown apiece of him. He had not money enough to pay me. After supper my Lord exceeding merry, and he and I and W. Howe to sing, and so to bed.  *(The Diary of Samuel Pepys M.A. F.R.S., edited by Henry B.
