End of winter

At the office doing business all the morning, and my wife being gone to buy some things in the city I dined with Sir W. Batten, and in the afternoon met Sir W. Pen at the Treasury Office, and there paid off the Guift, where late at night, and so called in and eat a bit at Sir W. Batten’s again, and so home and to bed, to-morrow being washing day.

ice all gone
the city a treasury
of ash


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Monday 10 March 1661/62.
