These letters, along with their footnotes, are taken from Guy de la Bédoyère’s website with his kind permission. That site has been linked to at relevant points during the diary, but it seems a good idea to have them all on this site too, with links to all the Encyclopedia references.
They make for interesting reading, in particular the different style Pepys uses in his letters to others compared to that in his private diary.
We also have quite a few letters that were exchanged between Pepys and various correspondents from later years, but they won’t appear here until after the diary ends, to avoid spoilers.
