    My wife tells me that it is from her examining the girle and getting a confession now from her of all ... which do mightily trouble me.

    Also with all her old kindnesses to me, and my ill-using of her from the beginning, and the many temptations she hath refused.

    Several temptations my wife was particular in, and especially from my Lord Sandwich, and then the courtship of my Lord Hinchingbrooke.

  2. If I've learned anything from @samuelpepys, it's to always avoid fondling the maid while your wife is nearby.

  3. After half-an-hour's slumber my wife cries out that she should never sleep more, and so kept raving, that made me cry and weep heartily.

    I burst out in tears myself, and so continued almost half the night, the moon shining so that it was light.

    After much sorrow and little ravings (though I am apt to think they were counterfeit from her), all was quiet again, and so to sleep.

    I did, with tears in my eyes, which I could not help, discharge Willet and advise her to be gone as soon as she could, and never to see me.

  5. I believe she understands me to be her friend, and I am apt to believe by what my wife hath told me is a cunning girle, if not a slut.

  8. Meanwhile in 1668, there's been uproar on @samuelpepys's timeline over the last few days. A cautionary tale. Saddened by it all.

    I had a mighty mind to have seen or given Deb. a little money, but my wife rose presently, and would not let me be out of her sight.

    My wife flew out into a rage, calling me dog and rogue, and that I had a rotten heart; all which, knowing that I deserved it, I bore with.

    Word being brought presently up that Deb. was gone away by coach with her things, my wife was friends, and so all quiet.

    More troubled to see how my wife is by this means likely for ever to have her hand over me, that I shall for ever be a slave to her.
