Such an amazing life; huge times to have lived through. The style is as bright and readable as any modern diarist - and much of it is a good deal more interesting. Doing the grand tour, as a spy: nearly caught by pirates, arrested in Switzerland for behaving like an Englishman abroad, interviewing galley slaves, witnessing gruesome tortures, discovering the duvet, catching smallpox.... His life steps onward always on the political knife-edge, miraculously holding down senior public appointments all the way, while around him massive undercurrents, huge tides of catholic and protestant, cavalier and roundhead, surge and swirl. Enjoy!
