Farewell to Pepys.
After 40 years of friendship, the bond was broken by Samuel's death on 26th May, 1703. The friendship had survived the deeply troubled times - with John Evelyn even visiting his friend in the Tower on several occasions (now that was a dangerous and very friendly act in those days) - once, at least, bringing a feast of venison for their mutual enjoyment.
For those that are interested, I am in the process of designing a page in the on-line version of the Diary with a list of clickable links to all Pepysian mentions by John - when it is done ... watch this space.
