Survivors

Up and to the office, at noon home to dinner, and to the office again, where very late, and then home to supper and to bed.
This day returned Sir W. Batten and Sir J. Minnes from Lee Roade, where they have been to see the wrecke of “The London,” out of which, they say, the guns may be got, but the hull of her will be wholly lost, as not being capable of being weighed.

on the road the wreck
out of which they may be got
but lost being able
being weighed


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 11 March 1665.
