Instructions for fate

Up betimes to my office, where my clerks with me, and very busy all the morning writing letters. At noon down to Sir J. Minnes and Lord Bruncker to Greenwich to sign some of the Treasurer’s books, and there dined very well; and thence to look upon our rooms again at the King’s house, which are not yet ready for us. So home and late writing letters, and so, weary with business, home to supper and to bed.

writing no in a green book
in rooms which are not yet
ready for us
writing let me be


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Thursday 24 August 1665.
