At the office all the morning. After dinner to the King’s playhouse, to see an old play of Shirly’s, called “Hide Parke” the first day acted; where horses are brought upon the stage but it is but a very moderate play, only an excellent epilogue spoke by Beck Marshall. Thence home and to my office, and then to supper and to bed, and overnight took some pills

off to play the first
horse on Mars

off to be a dove

I took
some pills

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 11 July 1668
