Up betimes, and to the Duke of Albemarle with an account of my yesterday’s actions in writing. So back to the office, where all the morning very busy. After dinner by coach to see and speak with Mr. Povy, and after little discourse back again home, where busy upon letters till past 12 at night, and so home to supper and to bed, weary.
I mar my day
busy as a night ear
Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 16 May 1665.
