27 January 1914; Tuesday

Got up about 8 o’clock. Rather dull. Fine cold day. Had a bit toothache. Finished in good time at night. Went down to class meeting at night1. Received club money and banked £1. Talked to Charlie, Willie, Jim Wilkinson2 and Blaikie after the choir practice. Went to bed about 11.30.

  1. The “class meeting”: the regular congregation at Chapel were allocated to ‘classes’ which met at intervals, generally mid-­week, for prayer and discussion. Each class had a respected ‘leader’ who was expected to exercise some level of general pastoral care. 

  2. Jim Wilkinson: not identified, but possibly a relative of Mother (née Wilkinson.)
