Review Text

  • By Simon P. Howes on 7 May 2008

    I'm sure these immensely huge historical individuals exchanged lively conversations in person but their correspondance - or that published here - is numbingly dull. A real disappointment considering the detail and disclosures recorded in Pepy's diary (but then I suppose not, if you read Evelyn's...)
