“God forgive me!”

This is certainly a strange entry in Samuel Pepys' diary for September 12, 1665, which happens to have been exactly three hundred years prior to my date of birth. Though I'm glad to see that Pepys mentions Sir John Minnes, whose circumstances I pondered ("What happened to Sir Minnes?") and further explored ("The Decline and Likely Fall of Sir Minnes") a blog-lifetime ago. Apparently I gave up the quest on October 14, 2009, never quite having learned of his fate.
