Worn down

At the office betimes (it being cold all night and this morning, and a very great frost they say abroad, which is much, having had no summer at all almost), where we sat, and in the afternoon also about settling the establishment of the number of men borne on ships, &c., till the evening, and after that in my closet till late, and quite tired with business, home to supper and to bed.

night road
and the numb men borne on it
tire


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Friday 28 August 1663.
