End of the month

At home all the morning; and in the afternoon all of us at the office, upon a letter from the Duke for the making up of a speedy estimate of all the debts of the Navy, which is put into good forwardness. I home and Sir W. Pen to my house, who with his children staid playing cards late, and so to bed.

making a speedy
estimate of debts—
his children play late


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 28 December 1661.
