Samuel Pepys

Samuel Pepys was a diarist from the 17th century, who famously wrote about the Great Fire of London, and is very well known in the UK, but less well known elsewhere, I have found.

He wrote in shorthand and took the precaution of using a strange composite language within the shorthand when describing his encounters with young ladies - although most of that has been decoded.

This is a site about him and his diary.
