Re: [pepysdiary] Site News: What are your favourite diary moments?
- "Mr Isaacke Houblon - that handsome man - prettily dressed and dirty at his door in Dowgate..." (2.9.66) A nice alliteration on a desperate day. I've often wandered down Dowgate and tried to imagine the scene. But there are so many: from 1665 good Dr Burnett; the coachman at Holborn who can go no further; Proctor the Islington vintner who put on great entertainments, the poor ale-seller at Westminster Hall who lost all his family. Where to stop?

What are your favourite diary moments?
As we approach the end of the diary it would be great to read what your favourite moments from the diary are. Any particular phrases or events that have stuck in your head? Any especially memorable descriptions? If it’s a brief snippet, post it in a comment below, with a link to the diary entry. If you have an entire entry that you want to share, just post a link to it and tell us why you love it.
Thanks to Pauline Benson on the discussion list for this idea!
- Any chance you'll be reposting the diary entries from the beginning, Phil? Or is that just too much to hope for?! I'd like a second chance to follow along from the start.
Does this answer your question?
