Every Man in his Humour

Every Man in his Humour is in Jacobean and Restoration Plays.

Samuel Pepys' Diary 09 February 1667. 09 Feb 1667. To the office, where we sat all the morning busy. At noon home to dinner, and then to my office again, where also busy, very busy late, and then went home and read a piece of a play, "Every Man in his Humour", [Ben Jonson's well-known play.] wherein is the greatest propriety of speech that ever I read in my life: and so to bed.
This noon come my wife's watchmaker, and received £12 of me for her watch; but Captain Rolt coming to speak with me about a little business, he did judge of the work to be very good work, and so I am well contented, and he hath made very good, that I knew, to Sir W. Pen (45) and Lady Batten.
