Samuel Pepys' Diary 07 November 1667. 07 Nov 1667. Up, and at the office hard all the morning, and at noon resolved with Sir W. Pen (46) to go see "The Tempest", an old play of Shakespeare's, acted, I hear, the first day; and so my wife, and girl, and W. Hewer (25) by themselves, and Sir W. Pen (46) and I afterwards by ourselves; and forced to sit in the side balcone over against the musique-room at the Duke's house, close by my Lady Dorset (45) and a great many great ones. The house mighty full; the King (37) and Court there and the most innocent play that ever I saw; and a curious piece of musique in an echo of half sentences, the echo repeating the former half, while the man goes on to the latter; which is mighty pretty. The play [has] no great wit, but yet good, above ordinary plays.
Thence home with Sir W. Pen (46), and there all mightily pleased with the play; and so to supper and to bed, after having done at the office.

Samuel Pepys' Diary 13 November 1667. 13 Nov 1667. Up, and down to the Old Swan, and so to Westminster; where I find the House sitting, and in a mighty heat about Commissioner Pett (57), that they would have him impeached, though the Committee have yet brought in but part of their Report: and this heat of the House is much heightened by Sir Thomas Clifford (37) telling them, that he was the man that did, out of his own purse, employ people at the out-ports to prevent the King of Scots (37) to escape after the battle of Worcester. The House was in a great heat all this day about it; and at last it was carried, however, that it should be referred back to the Committee to make further enquiry. I here spoke with Roger Pepys (50), who sent for me, and it was to tell me that the Committee is mighty full of the business of buying and selling of tickets, and to caution me against such an enquiry (wherein I am very safe), and that they have already found out Sir Richard Ford's (53) son to have had a hand in it, which they take to be the same as if the father had done it, and I do believe the father may be as likely to be concerned in it as his son. But I perceive by him they are resolved to find out the bottom of the business if it be possible.
By and by I met with Mr. Wren (38), who tells me that the Duke of York (34) is in as good condition as is possible for a man, in his condition of the smallpox. He, I perceive, is mightily concerned in the business of my Chancellor (58), the impeachment against whom is gone up to the House of Lords; and great differences there are in the Lords' House about it, and the Lords are very high one against another.
Thence home to dinner, and as soon as dinner done I and my wife and Willet to the Duke of York's (34), house, and there saw the Tempest again, which is very pleasant, and full of so good variety that I cannot be more pleased almost in a comedy, only the seamen's part a little too tedious.
Thence home, and there to my chamber, and do begin anew to bind myself to keep my old vows, and among the rest not to see a play till Christmas but once in every other week, and have laid aside £10, which is to be lost to the poor, if I do. This I hope in God will bind me, for I do find myself mightily wronged in my reputation, and indeed in my purse and business, by my late following of my pleasure for so long time as I have done.
So to supper and then to bed. This day Mr. Chichly (53) told me, with a seeming trouble, that the House have stopped his son Jack (Sir John) (27) his going to France, that he may be a witness against my Lord Sandwich (42): which do trouble me, though he can, I think, say little.
