Evidence: "I am reading Evelyn's Diary to myself now. I like it very much. The style is not so antiquated as that of Pepys although it is contemporary, neither is the matter so personal. He gives most amusing descriptions of the state of foreign towns at that period." No digital version is currently available publically. There is a physical copy present in the John Addington Symonds Project collection.
