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 Hall1. Mr Newrick’s choir providing the entertainment. Charlie saw Susie Robson and she promised to go to the Band of Hope2.

Joe received word from Dr Todd with regard to the secretaryship of the British Medical3 for the North of England.

  1. Memorial Hall: See note on 10 January

  2. Band of Hope: See note on 13 January

  3. “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.
