At the office all the morning, and at noon to the ’Change, thinking to meet with Langford about my father’s house in Fleet Streete, but I come too late, and so home to dinner, and all the afternoon at the office busy, and at night home to supper and talk, and with mighty content with my wife, and so to bed.

o morning
change me
with my father’s house
come home
to a tent

Erasure poem derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Tuesday 22 December 1668.
