Samuel Pepys is back

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.
