At the office all the morning. At noon Sir Williams both and I at a great fish dinner at the Dolphin, given us by two tar merchants, and very merry we were till night, and so home. This day my wife and Pall went to see my Lady Kingston, her brother’s lady.

At the office, I am
a fish in the dolphin.
Tar me and err.
Night is my wife, a pall my king.

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Friday 15 March 1660/61.
