Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn first came to know each other during the Second Dutch War (1664-7). As the plague raged in the London they loved, both were preoccupied with the business of casualties from the war, Pepys as Clerk of the Acts and Evelyn as a Commissioner for Sick and Wounded and Prisoners of War. Nearly forty years later they were still corresponding, but now exchanging remedies for the afflictions of old age. Their friendship and their relations with others, as recorded in their famous diaries and letters, provide an exceptional opportunity to witness life at the heart of Restoration England and the late seventeenth century. Remarkably, their correspondence has never been published in its entirety, even though Pepys and Evelyn are revealed in fresh dimensions as many details of their lives and friendship emerge which go unmentioned, or are barely alluded to, in the diaries. Particular Friends includes every letter which could be located [some of which have been lost for more than a hundred years]. The complete text of each has been newly transcribed and fully annotated.This is a revised and updated edition, including the texts of two newly discovered letters.
