Up and to the office and then to dinner. After dinner to the office again all the afternoon, and much business with me. Good newes beyond all expectation of the decrease of the plague, being now but 79, and the whole but 272. So home with comfort to bed. A most furious storme all night and morning.
after dinner the news
beyond all expectation of ease
in a hole
a furious storm
Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 23 January 1666.
