Evil Vines Cemetery

June 7th.  This day I did in Drury Lane see two or three houses marked with a red cross upon their doors and “Lord have mercy upon us” writ there, which was a sad sight to me.  Plague was so common that this would have been a common sight in London with the person seeing it simply feeling sorry for the family inside the locked house.  June 21st.  I found all the town almost going out of town, the coaches and wagons being all full of people going into the country.
