Pepys's choicest bits*

7 Feb. 1659/60

"Boys do now cry, 'Kiss my Parliament' instead of 'Kiss my arse,' so great and general a contempt is the Rump [Parliament] come to among all men, good and bad."

*If y'all are lucky, this may become a running feature of this blog.

Ooh, that would be a cool running feature! And btw, I liked the fact that you finished your comment on my blog last night with "now, to bed."

Oops I didn't mean to do that.

anyway, you know about the online, all-volunteer-annotated pepys diary, I hope?


it's addictive.

Ripley: welcome! And yes, I know about the online diary, but I felt I was so far behind that it was best (and also, for reasons of portability, easiest) to make use of the paperback set I picked up several years ago at a used bookstore.

But what a great resource to have available.
