Tip for travelers

All the morning putting things in my house in order, and packing up glass to send into the country to my father, and books to my brother John, and then to my Lord Crew’s to dinner; and thence to Mr. Lewes Philips chamber, and there at noon with him for business, and received 80l. upon Jaspar Trice’s account, and so home with it, and so to my chamber for all this evening, and then to bed.

Things I use
in a glass country:
lips for business
and rice for a bed.


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Friday 21 February 1661/62.
