7 March 1914; Saturday

At work as usual. Some excitement through football match. Sunderland 0 versus Burnley 0 for the English Cup. I walked to Roker and back in the afternoon and again with Willie at night. At the lecture at Trinity1 and slipped down the steps and split my trouser knee. Called in at Mr Chadwick’s and made final arrangements with regard to the service tomorrow. Willie in with me and he insisted on his work scheme. Mr Whittaker had Dr Prowse *, and he gave the same verdict as Dr Blair.

  1. “Trinity”: possibly Holy Trinity Church, Bishopwearmouth.
