In bed the greatest part of this day also, and my swelling in some measure gone. I received a letter this day from my father, that Sir R. Bernard do a little fear that my uncle has not observed exactly the custom of Brampton in his will about his lands there, which puts me to a great trouble in mind, and at night wrote to him and to my father about it, being much troubled at it.
In bed, swelling,
I measure a little fear,
the custom of
the mind at night.
Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 12 October 1661.
