And with Sir W. Batten, who would have taken away my hands before they were stowed. But by and by comes brother Balty from sea, which I was glad of; and so got him, and Mr. So down late to Woolwich , and there find my wife out of humour and indifferent, as she uses upon her having much liberty abroad. Lay there, and up betimes, and by water with my gold, and laid it with the rest in my office , where I find all well and safe. So with Sir W.
Coventry and Sir G. Carteret met. Little business before us but want of money. Broke up, and I home by coach round the town. Dined at home, Balty and myself putting up my papers in my closet in the office. He away, I down to Deptford and there spoke with Bagwell and agreed upon to-morrow, and come home in the rain by water. In the evening at Sir W.
After supper, I home, and with Mr. Hater , Gibson , and Tom alone, got all my chests and money into the further cellar with much pains, but great content to me when done. So very late and weary, to bed. Up, and with Sir W. Pen to St. The latter told me of the unkindness of the young man to his wife , which is now over, and I have promised to appear a counsellor to him. I am glad she is like to be so near us again.
After dinner I took him down with me to Deptford , and there by the Bezan loaded above half my goods and sent them away. Pen, and so late to bed. Up, and down to Tower Wharfe ; and there, with Balty and labourers from Deptford , did get my goods housed well at home. So down to Deptford again to fetch the rest, and there eat a bit of dinner at the Globe , with the master of the Bezan with me, while the labourers went to dinner. Here I hear that this poor towne do bury still of the plague seven or eight in a day.
So to Sir G. Up, and to work, having carpenters come to helpe in setting up bedsteads and hangings; and at that trade my people and I all the morning, till pressed by publique business to leave them against my will in the afternoon: and yet I was troubled in being at home , to see all my goods lie up and down the house in a bad condition, and strange workmen going to and fro might take what they would almost. All the afternoon busy; and Sir W.
Coventry come to me, and found me, as God would have it, in my office , and people about me setting my papers to rights; and there discoursed about getting an account ready against the Parliament , and thereby did create me infinite of business, and to be done on a sudden; which troubled me: but, however, he being gone, I about it late, and to good purpose. And so home, having this day also got my wine out of the ground again, and set in my cellar; but with great pain to keep the porters that carried it in from observing the money-chests there.
This day, poor Tom Pepys , the turner, was with me, and Kate Joyce , to bespeake places; one for himself, the other for her husband. She tells me he hath lost l. All the morning at the office , Harman being come to my great satisfaction to put up my beds and hangings, so I am at rest, and followed my business all day. Dined with Sir W. Batten , mighty busy about this account, and while my people were busy, wrote near thirty letters and orders with my owne hand.
At it till eleven at night; and it is strange to see how clear my head was, being eased of all the matter of all these letters; whereas one would think that I should have been dazed. I never did observe so much of myself in my life. In the evening there comes to me Captain Cocke , and walked a good while in the garden. He says he hath computed that the rents of houses lost by this fire in the City comes to , l. The Dutch fleete is not gone home, but rather to the North, and so dangerous to our Gottenburgh fleete.
That the Parliament is likely to fall foul upon some persons; and, among others, on the Vice-chamberlaine, though we both believe with little ground. That he do not apprehend there will be any disturbances in State upon it; for that all men are busy in looking after their owne business to save themselves. He gone, I to finish my letters, and home to bed; and find to my infinite joy many rooms clean; and myself and wife lie in our own chamber again. But much terrified in the nights now-a-days with dreams of fire, and falling down of houses. Lay with much pleasure in bed talking with my wife about Mr.
Hewer also, if Mrs. Mercer leaves her house. To the office , whither also all my people about this account, and there busy all the morning. At noon, with my wife, against her will, all undressed and dirty, dined at Sir W. Thence, after dinner, displeased with our entertainment, to my office again, and there till almost midnight and my people with me, and then home , my head mightily akeing about our accounts.
By water, seeing the City all the way, a sad sight indeed, much fire being still in. Coventry newes thereof; so that we do much fear our missing them. Here come in and talked with him Sir Thomas Clifford , who appears a very fine gentleman, and much set by at Court for his activity in going to sea, and stoutness everywhere, and stirring up and down. Carteret , where Sir W. Batten and Sir J. Minnes , whom I had not seen a long time before, being his first coming abroad and Lord Bruncker passing his accounts. Thence home a little to look after my people at work and back to Sir G.
They gone and I weary, my wife and I, and Balty and his wife , who come hither to-day to helpe us, to a barrel of oysters I sent from the river today, and so to bed. Strange with what freedom and quantity I pissed this night, which I know not what to impute to but my oysters , unless the coldness of the night should cause it, for it was a sad rainy and tempestuous night.
Soon as up I begun to have some pain in my bladder and belly, as usual, which made me go to dinner betimes, to fill my belly, and that did ease me, so as I did my business in the afternoon, in forwarding the settling of my house, very well. Betimes to bed, my wife also being all this day ill in the same manner. This day the Parliament met, and adjourned till Friday, when the King will be with them. Pen by coach to St. Thence to White Hall , with Sir W. Another time, he and Pinchbacke and Dr. Goffe , now a religious man, Pinchbacke did begin a frolick to drink out of a glass with a toad in it that he had taken up going out to shit, he did it without harm.
Two little pictures of sea and ships and a little gilt frame belonging to my plate of the River , I want; but my books do heartily trouble me. Most of my gilt frames are hurt, which also troubles me, but most my books. This day I put on two shirts, the first time this year, and do grow well upon it; so that my disease is nothing but wind. Up, much troubled about my books, but cannot, imagine where they should be. Up, to the setting my closet to rights, and Sir W. Coventry takes me at it, which did not displease me.
He and I to discourse about our accounts, and the bringing them to the Parliament , and with much content to see him rely so well on my part. He and I together to Broad Streete to the Vice-Chamberlain , and there discoursed a while and parted. My Lady Carteret come to town, but I did not see her. He tells me how the fleete is come into the Downes. Nothing done, nor French fleete seen: we drove all from our anchors. But he says newes is come that De Ruyter is dead, or very near it, of a hurt in his mouth, upon the discharge of one of his own guns; which put him into a fever, and he likely to die, if not already dead.
We parted, and I home to dinner, and after dinner to the setting things in order, and all my people busy about the same work. In the afternoon, out by coach, my wife with me, which we have not done several weeks now, through all the ruines, to shew her them, which frets her much, and is a sad sight indeed. The old woman charges her with going abroad and staying out late, and painting in the absence of her husband, —[??
So home, and to the office , to even my journall, and then home, and very late up with Jane setting my books in perfect order in my closet, but am mightily troubled for my great books that I miss, and I am troubled the more for fear there should be more missing than what I find, though by the room they take on the shelves I do not find any reason to think it.
So to bed.
Up, and mightily pleased with the setting of my books the last night in order, and that which did please me most of all is that W. Hewer tells me that upon enquiry he do find that Sir W. Pen hath a hamper more than his own, which he took for a hamper of bottles of wine , and are books in it. I was impatient to see it, but they were carried into a wine-cellar, and the boy is abroad with him at the House, where the Parliament met to-day, and the King to be with them.
At noon after dinner I sent for Harry , and he tells me it is so, and brought me by and by my hamper of books to my great joy, with the same books I missed, and three more great ones, and no more. I did give him 5 s. Carteret , and so called my wife, and paid for some things she bought, and so home, and there after a little doing at the office about our accounts, which now draw near the time they should be ready, the House having ordered Sir G. Carteret, upon his offering them, to bring them in on Saturday next, I home, and there, with great pleasure, very late new setting all my books; and now I am in as good condition as I desire to be in all worldly respects.
The Lord of Heaven make me thankfull, and continue me therein! This day I had new stairs of main timber put to my cellar going into the yard. To my closet, and had it new washed, and now my house is so clean as I never saw it, or any other house in my life, and every thing in as good condition as ever before the fire ; but with, I believe, about 20 l. My glazier , indeed, is so full of worke that I cannot get him to come to perfect my house. To the office , and there busy now for good and all about my accounts. My Lord Brunck come thither, thinking to find an office, but we have not yet met.
He do now give me a watch , a plain one, in the roome of my former watch with many motions which I did give him. If it goes well, I care not for the difference in worth, though believe there is above 5 l. He and I to Sir G. Carteret to discourse about his account, but Mr. Waith not being there nothing could be done, and therefore I home again, and busy all day.
In the afternoon comes Anthony Joyce to see me, and with tears told me his losse, but yet that he had something left that he can live well upon, and I doubt it not. But he would buy some place that he could have and yet keepe his trade where he is settled in St. He gone, I to the office again, and then to Sir G. Carteret, and there found Mr. Wayth, but, Lord! Carteret do discourse with Mr. Wayth about his accounts, like a man that understands them not one word. I held my tongue and let him go on like a passionate foole. In the afternoon I paid for the two lighters that carried my goods to Deptford , and they cost me 8 l.
Till past midnight at our accounts, and have brought them to a good issue, so as to be ready to meet Sir G. Carteret and Sir W.
Satanism is not a Congregational Religion | Church of Satan
Coventry to-morrow, but must work to-morrow, which Mr. This night writ for brother John to come to towne. Among other reasons, my estate lying in money, I am afeard of any sudden miscarriage. So to bed mightily contented in dispatching so much business, and find my house in the best condition that ever I knew it.
Home to bed. Wayth and I eat a bit of victuals in my old closet, now my little dining-room, which makes a pretty room, and my house being so clean makes me mightily pleased, but only I do lacke Mercer or somebody in the house to sing with.
Soon as eat a bit Mr. Coventry met, and we did debate the whole business of our accounts to the Parliament ; where it appears to us that the charge of the war from September 1st, , to this Michaelmas , will have been but 3,, l. Here happened a pretty question of Sir W. Having done, and taken from Sir W.
Coventry the minutes of a letter to my Lord Treasurer, Wayth and I back again to the office, and thence back down to the water with my wife and landed him in Southwarke , and my wife and I for pleasure to Fox- hall , and there eat and drank, and so back home, and I to the office till midnight drawing the letter we are to send with our accounts to my Lord Treasurer, and that being done to my mind, I home to bed. Coventry read and all approved of my letter, and then home , and after dinner, Mr.
Coventry; and at last found him and Sir G. Here brought the letter, but found that Sir G. Carteret had altered his account since he did give me the abstract of it: so all my letter must be writ over again, to put in his last abstract. Carteret intends to deliver to the Parliament of his payments since September 1st, , and there I find my name the very second for flags, which I had bought for the Navy, of calico ; once, about and odd pounds, which vexed me mightily.
At last, I concluded of scraping out my name and putting in Mr. Here I saw my Lady Carteret lately come to towne, who, good lady! So took up my wife and away home, and there to bed, and… [Continued tomorrow. Carteret being gone into the House with his book of accounts under his arme, to present to the House. I had brought my wife to White Hall , and leaving her with Mrs. Michell , where she sat in her shop and had burnt wine sent for her, I walked in the Hall, and among others with Ned Pickering , who continues still a lying, bragging coxcombe , telling me that my Lord Sandwich may thank himself for all his misfortune; for not suffering him and two or three good honest fellows more to take them by the throats that spoke ill of him, and told me how basely Lionell Walden hath carried himself towards my Lord; by speaking slightly of him, which I shall remember.
Thence took my wife home to dinner, and then to the office , where Mr. Hater all the day putting in order and entering in a book all the measures that this account of the Navy hath been made up by, and late at night to Mrs. Turner and her husband did lay their case to me about their lodgings, Sir J. Minnes being now gone wholly to his owne, and now, they being empty, they doubt Sir T. Harvy or Lord Bruncker may look after the lodgings. Batten or Sir W.
Pen to trust to but me, that they have disobliged. So home to bed, and all night still mightily troubled in my sleepe, with fire and houses pulling down. Up, and with Sir J. Minnes to St. So home, not agreeing for silk for a petticoat for her which she desired, but home to dinner and then back to White Hall, leaving my wife by the way to buy her petticoat of Bennet, and I to White Hall waiting all day on the Duke of Yorke to move the King for getting Lanyon some money at Plymouth out of some oyle prizes brought in thither, but could get nothing done, but here Mr.
Dugdale I hear the great loss of books in St. And Mr. Crumlu all his books and household stuff burned; they trusting St. A very great loss. His father hath lost above l. Here I had the hap to see my Lady Denham : and at night went into the dining-room and saw several fine ladies; among others, Castlemayne , but chiefly Denham again; and the Duke of Yorke taking her aside and talking to her in the sight of all the world, all alone; which was strange, and what also I did not like.
Here I met with good Mr. Being come home, I to Sir W. Batten , and there hear our business was tendered to the House to-day, and a Committee of the whole House chosen to examine our accounts, and a great many Hotspurs enquiring into it, and likely to give us much trouble and blame, and perhaps which I am afeard of will find faults enow to demand better officers. This I truly fear. Away with Sir W. Pen , who was there, and he and I walked in the garden by moonlight, and he proposes his and my looking out into Scotland about timber , and to use Pett there; for timber will be a good commodity this time of building the City ; and I like the motion, and doubt not that we may do good in it.
We did also discourse about our Privateer , and hope well of that also, without much hazard, as, if God blesses us, I hope we shall do pretty well toward getting a penny. I was mightily pleased with our discourse, and so parted, and to the office to finish my journall for three or four days, and so home to supper, and to bed. Our fleete abroad, and the Dutch too, for all we know; the weather very bad; and under the command of an unlucky man , I fear. God bless him, and the fleete under him! A very furious blowing night all the night; and my mind still mightily perplexed with dreams, and burning the rest of the town, and waking in much pain for the fleete.
I then to the Exchequer , and there, among other things, spoke to Mr. She is poor in clothes, and not bred to any carriage, but will be soon taught all, and if Mercer do not come again, I think we may have her upon better terms, and breed her to what we please. Thence to Sir W. Batten , the Lieutenant of the Tower , and Mr. Thin , a pretty gentleman, going to Gottenburgh. Having dined, Sir W. Coventry, Sir W. Batten, and I walked into his closet to consider of some things more to be done in a list to be given to the Parliament of all our ships, and time of entry and discharge.
Coventry seems to think they will soon be weary of the business, and fall quietly into the giving the King what is fit. This he hopes.
Thence I by coach home to the office , and there intending a meeting, but nobody being there but myself and Sir J. Minnes , who is worse than nothing, I did not answer any body, but kept to my business in the office till night, and then Sir W. Pen to me, and thence to Sir W. I have this evening discoursed with W. Hewer about Mercer, I having a mind to have her again; and I am vexed to hear him say that she hath no mind to come again, though her mother hath.
No newes of the fleete yet, but that they went by Dover on the 25th towards the Gunfleete , but whether the Dutch be yet abroad, or no, we hear not. De Ruyter is not dead, but like to do well. Most think that the gross of the French fleete are gone home again. Lay long in bed, and am come to agreement with my wife to have Mercer again, on condition she may learn this winter two months to dance, and she promises me she will endeavour to learn to sing, and all this I am willing enough to. So up, and by and by the glazier comes to finish the windows of my house, which pleases me, and the bookbinder to gild the backs of my books.
I got the glass of my book-presses to be done presently, which did mightily content me, and to setting my study in a little better order; and so to my office to my people, busy about our Parliament accounts; and so to dinner, and then at them again close. At night comes Sir W. Pen , and he and I a turn in the garden, and he broke to me a proposition of his and my joining in a design of fetching timber and deals from Scotland, by the help of Mr. Pett upon the place; which, while London is building, will yield good money. I approve it. We judged a third man, that is knowing, is necessary, and concluded on Sir W.
Warren , and sent for him to come to us to-morrow morning. I full of this all night, and the project of our man of war ; but he and I both dissatisfied with Sir W. He gone, I discoursed with W. Hewer about Mercer, having a great mind she should come to us again, and instructed him what to say to her mother about it. And so home, to supper, and to bed. A little meeting at the office by Sir W.
Batten , Sir W. Pen , and myself, being the first since the fire. We rose soon, and comes Sir W. Warren , by our desire, and with Sir W. Pen and I talked of our Scotch motion, which Sir W. Brooke McKinley. Amy Lane Goodreads Author. Tere Michaels Goodreads Author.
