Origin[edit | edit source]

Samuel Pepys was an administrator of the English navy and Member of Parliament who is most famous for the diary that he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. From 1660 to 1669, he jotted down personal and historical events that occurred concerning Britain. His notes documented the Second Anglo-Dutch War, the Great Plague and most famously the Great Fire of London. The text itself was written in shorthand for personal use only, but he maintained the main text clear by writing the rough drafts in other journals. His diary was only one of the many rare and important documents Pepys had collected throughout his lifetime.
