    Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn began their correspondence during the Second Dutch War of 1664-7 when both men were involved with war casualties, Pepys as Clerk of the Acts and Evelyn as a Commissioner for Sick and Wounded Seamen and Prisoners of War. Evelyn's final letter, some 40 years later, is dated a few months before Pepys's death in 1703. Illuminating their friendship and Restoration society generally, this is a complete and fully annotated edition of all the letters that passed between the two great diarists.
