All the morning at Sir G. Palmer’s advising about getting my bill drawn. From thence to the Navy office, where in the afternoon we met and sat, and there I begun to sign bills in the Office the first time. From thence Captain Holland and Mr. Browne of Harwich took me to a tavern and did give me a collation. From thence to the Temple to further my bills being done, and so home to my Lord, and thence to bed.
The palm is
a navy of
a sign from Holland,
to a hen.
Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 9 July 1660.
