Robert Saint-Leger Posted January 13, 2017 Share Posted January 13, 2017 (OOC - I can't find the Admiralty listed anywhere on our board, but in early 1700 it was between Whitehall and Pall Mall, so I'll just drop this thread here for now ) After his meeting with Lord Maldon, Beverley had gone directly to his meeting with Pepys after giving his apologies to his wife and telling her not to wait up for him. He intended to go to a presentation at Gresham afterward. It was on something planetary and that could perhaps have implications for navigation that he wished to hear about. He thought to stop on his way and see if his wife's brothers wished to accompany him; they were both interested by things of science and it seemed a good enough excuse to try to speak to their father afterward. The admiralty was a familiar place to him and while Cumberland maintained offices as Lord High Admiral at Whitehall, much of the operation of the Navy and finances was out of the building between Whitehall and Pall Mall, passed the Mews. He told a clerk to tell Pepys he had arrived. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
