Hole truth

(Lord’s day). Up and to church. At noon comes unexpected Mr. Fuller, the minister, and dines with me, and also I had invited Mr. Cooper with one I judge come from sea, and he and I spent the whole afternoon together, he teaching me some things in understanding of plates. At night to the office, doing business, and then home to supper. Then a psalm, to prayers, and to bed.

an unexpected minister the hole
teaching me something of night
of sin and psalm


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Sunday 23 October 1664.
