      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.

      John Evelyn's appraisal of his friend Sam is at:

      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.

      In friendship,
      Eric.
