Cold hearted

Lay long, and when up find Mrs. Clerk of Greenwich and her daughter Daniel, their business among other things was a request her daughter was to make, so I took her into my chamber, and there it was to help her husband to the command of a little new pleasure boat building, which I promised to assist in. And here I had opportunity para besar elle, and tocar sus mamelles, so as to make mi mismo espender with great pleasure. Then to the office, and there did a little business, and then to the ‘Change and did the like. So home to dinner, and spent all the afternoon in putting some things, pictures especially, in order, and pasting my Lady Castlemayne’s print on a frame, which I have made handsome, and is a fine piece. So to the office in the evening to marshall my papers of accounts presented to the Parliament, against any future occasion to recur to them, which I did do to my great content. So home and did some Tangier work, and so to bed.

I am husband to a boat
and I am the ice
I change like the afternoon
putting things in order
in my castle on Mars


Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Friday 21 December 1666.
