23 February 1914; Monday

Got up about 8 o’clock. Joe went to Huddersfield. He got back at night and said he was to hear next week. Charlie off work on holiday. He went up and saw Mr Pike and he promised to sing. Played piano a bit at night. Went down to see Mr Briggs, but he was not in. Father still improving. Received rather alarming news with regard to Mr Whittaker.
