18 March 1914; Wednesday

Got through work in decent time. Joe received message from Newcastle with regard to the place he applied for. He went to Newcastle and practically fixed it. At night he went to see Dr Todd in regard to a postcard he had received.

Band of Hope Concert1. Very poor house. The social a success from a musical point of view. Pye and Charlie sang all right and Miss Robson was not so bad. Briggs managed all right. I played pretty well. Miss Hunter and the children were pretty well taken with. Mr Morley was good but had poor reception. Mr Chadwick didn’t turn up except for his speech. A lot of excitement at home about it.

  1. Band of Hope: See note on 13 January
