Samuel Pepys is back

pepys
Over at www.pepysdiary.com, they have again started issuing the great diarist's journal entries for each day, 1660 reflecting forward to 2013. I have syndicated to livejournal at pepys_diary. The opening months are particularly dramatic as he witnesses at close hand the collapse of the British government after ten years of the Cromwellian commonwealth and finds himself intimately involved, though at junior level, with the installation of the new regime in May. Strongly recommended.

Thanks for letting us know about this. I think I came in about 18 months into the diary last time round, so am glad of the opportunity to read the earlier part on a day-by-day basis. And I have missed Pepys since he stopped writing! The difference between the person he had become by the end of the diary and the first few entries from the start is quite striking, though.

Thanks for making the feed. I've never got round to reading much Pepys, and this seems like a good way in.

Many thanks for posting this. I have, of course read Pepys but reckon I would enjoy reading it here in diary chunks.
Have added this account.
kind regards
