Suspended

(Lord’s day). Did not stir out all day, but rose and dined below, and this day left off half skirts and put on a wastecoate, and my false taby wastecoate with gold lace; and in the evening there came Sir W. Batten to see me, and sat and supped very kindly with me, and so to prayers and to bed.

No stir out of half skirts
and false lace—
an evening bat.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Sunday 13 October 1661.
