Samuel Pepys ( 1633-1703) was the naval administra­tor and first secretary of the British Admiralty. Here’s what he wrote on this day in 1668.

In this part of the “Diary” no entry occurs for thirteen days, though there are several pages left blank. During the interval Pepys went into the country, as he subsequent­ly mentions his having been at Saxham, in Suffolk, during the king’s visit to Lord Crofts, which took place at this time. He might also probably have gone to Impington to fetch his wife. The pages left blank were never filled up.
