This chapter chronicles the life of John Pell in London from 1669 to 1685. John Pell returned to London in the late summer of 1669. The reasons for the move are not entirely clear; there is certainly no sign that his relations with Lord Brereton had cooled. Pell also began re-introducing himself to the intellectual life of the capital. On August 31, 1680 Pell was arrested for debt, and on 6 or 7 September he was consigned to the King's Bench prison. Despite all his personal problems, Pell had picked up the threads of his normal life after being released from prison. He resumed his attendance at the Royal Society. Pell died on December 12, 1685.
