28 January 1914; Wednesday

Got up about 7.45. Drilled a bit. Fine morning. Busy all day. Finished in good time. Called for Willie and went to Bethany1. Only a few there. German funny man. Natty played as usual. Beresford, Reg Davis and Miss Brown sang, not so badly. Father in low spirits all day. Sat up until after 12 talking. Labour Leaders of South African Strike2 deported about this time.

  1. Bethany: presumably an evangelical chapel. 

  2. Mahatma Gandhi returned (or was returned) from South Africa to India in 1914.
