So apparently it was on this day in 1664 that the Dutch surrendered New Amsterdam, which was then renamed New York.
I've been working away on that short story I was 'practically finished' a week ago. Spent much of yesterday trying to find a suitable pope who had died of poisoning. It's fair to say I was off on something of a tangent.
Anyway, nearly there now, for real.
Have a lovely weekend :)
