DIARY OF SAMUEL PEPYS VOLUME III: 1667 - 1669, THE

Synopsis

In the last three years of Pepys' diary, he was in his mid-30s and confident in his ability to deal with differing political factions within the Navy Office; his affection for his wife, Elizabeth, grew ever stronger, and he found he was worth £6,000 - a considerable sum for the son of a tailor, who started with nothing. But with fears for his eyesight, it was with some regret that he stopped writing his diary at the end of May 1669.
