Up, and at my Office all the morning, and after dinner all the afternoon in my house with Batelier shut up, drawing up my defence to the Duke of York upon his great letter, which I have industriously taken this opportunity of doing for my future use. At it late, and my mind and head mighty full of it all night.

in my house
a hut

in my defense

in my future
a head full of night

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Friday 11 September 1668
