[pepysdiary] That Other Diary.
- Hello Everybody,
Hope you all had a splendid Christmas ... back to work (Joke).
Whilst beavering away between pulling crackers and opening presents I came across, in Evelyn's Diary, this quatrain in 'elderly French' which I, sort of, understand but would like some help providing a translation from the French.
O gentille âme, estant taut estimée,
Qui te pourra loüer gu'en se taisant ?
Car la parole est toujours reprimée
Quand le suj'et surmonte le disant.
The address of the page is:
and it is in the Notes, item 2.
Any help would be appreciated.A Happy New Year to you all.
