The Telegraph has an article about a million word journal kept by a puritan minister from 1677 to 1691. A relatively small part, 40,000 words, was, like Pepys’ diary, written in shorthand which has now been interpreted. It’s due to be published in 2005.
(This isn’t strictly Pepys related, and I was going to post this only to the discussion group, but I thought it might be of interest to everyone!)
