No, nothing about footie, I’m afraid. I found it interesting that Pepys was writing at a time when Chelsea was a trip out of London, that the Florentine’s sent a special poison to trial on a hen, a kitten and a dog (they survived, btw). Fascinating view into life at the time.

I don’t think I could read the diaries in one sitting, but this gradual unrolling through a blog is excellent.
