Lit

Singing-master came to me this morning; then to the office all the morning. In the afternoon I went to the Theatre, and there I saw “The Tamer Tamed” well done. And then home, and prepared to go to Walthamstow to-morrow.
This night I was forced to borrow 40l. of Sir W. Batten.

Gin this morning,
ice in the afternoon heat.
And there I saw a well
and prepared to row.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Wednesday 31 July 1661.
