Up pretty betimes to my office, where all day long, but a little at home at dinner, at my office finishing all things about Mr. Wood’s contract for masts, wherein I am sure I shall save the King 400l. before I have done. At night home to supper and to bed.
time is a thin woods
I am sure I shall save
for one night
