Diary of Samuel Pepys 27 February 1663. 27 Feb 1663. After dinner Dr. Scarborough (47) took some of his friends, and I went along with them, to see the body alone, which we did, which was a lusty fellow, a seaman, that was hanged for a robbery. I did touch the dead body with my bare hand: it felt cold, but methought it was a very unpleasant sight. It seems one Dillon, of a great family, was, after much endeavours to have saved him, hanged with a silken halter this Sessions (of his own preparing), not for honour only, but it seems, it being soft and sleek, it do slip close and kills, that is, strangles presently: whereas, a stiff one do not come so close together, and so the party may live the longer before killed. But all the Doctors at table conclude, that there is no pain at all in hanging, for that it do stop the circulation of the blood; and so stops all sense and motion in an instant.
Thence we went into a private room, where I perceive they prepare the bodies, and there were the kidneys, ureters [&c.], upon which he read to-day, and Dr. Scarborough (47) upon my desire and the company's did show very clearly the manner of the disease of the stone and the cutting and all other questions that I could think of... how the water [comes] into the bladder through the three skins or coats just as poor Dr. Jolly has heretofore told me.
Thence with great satisfaction to me back to the Company, where I heard good discourse, and so to the afternoon Lecture upon the heart and lungs, &c., and that being done we broke up, took leave, and back to the office, we two, Sir W. Batten (62), who dined here also, being gone before. Here late, and to Sir W. Batten's (62) to speak upon some business, where I found Sir J. Minnes (63) pretty well fuddled I thought: he took me aside to tell me how being at my Chancellor's (54) to-day, my Lord told him that there was a Great Seal passing for Sir W. Pen (41), through the impossibility of the Comptroller's (52) duty to be performed by one man; to be as it were joynt-comptroller with him, at which he is stark mad; and swears he will give up his place, and do rail at Sir W. Pen (41) the cruellest; he I made shift to encourage as much as I could, but it pleased me heartily to hear him rail against him, so that I do see thoroughly that they are not like to be great friends, for he cries out against him for his house and yard and God knows what. For my part, I do hope, when all is done, that my following my business will keep me secure against all their envys. But to see how the old man do strut, and swear that he understands all his duty as easily as crack a nut, and easier, he told my Chancellor (54), for his teeth are gone; and that he understands it as well as any man in England; and that he will never leave to record that he should be said to be unable to do his duty alone; though, God knows, he cannot do it more than a child. All this I am glad to see fall out between them and myself safe, and yet I hope the King's service well done for all this, for I would not that should be hindered by any of our private differences.
So to my office, and then home to supper and to bed.

John Evelyn's Diary 10 March 1695. 10 Mar 1695. I dined at the Earl of Sunderland's (53) with Lord Spencer (19). My Lord showed me his library, now again improved by many books bought at the sale of Sir Charles Scarborough (79), an eminent physician, which was the very best collection, especially of mathematical books, that was I believe in Europe, once designed for the King's (64) Library at St. James's; but the Queen (32) dying, who was the great patroness of that design, it was let fall, and the books were miserably dissipated.
The new edition of Camden's "Britannia" was now published (by Bishop Gibson (26)), with great additions; those to Surrey were mine, so that I had one presented to me. Dr. Gale (60) showed me a MS. of some parts of the New Testament in vulgar Latin, that had belonged to a monastery in the North of Scotland, which he esteemed to be about eight hundred years old; there were some considerable various readings observable, as in John i., and genealogy of St. Luke.
