21 February 1914; Saturday

At work in good time. Got lunch at the office and went to the match from Grangetown with Alf. Sunderland 2 Preston 0. Rather unsatisfactory game. Bit late for meeting. Called for Willie at night and went to the Memorial Hall. Mr Newrick’s choir providing the entertainment. Charlie saw Susie Robson and she promised to go to the Band of Hope.

Joe received word from Dr Todd regarding† the secretaryship of the British Medical1 for the North of England.

  1. “British Medical” appears to be correct, with no word such as “Association” following; such an appointment with the BMA would have been a notably exalted position for Joe.
