4 April 1914; Saturday

At work as usual. Busy all morning. Finished about 1.30. Got missionary money squared up. Bought two books for prizes, and got money changed at Fred Waggott’s1. Went to Roker at night with Charlie and Willie. Read a bit. Jack2 got a baby. He was at our house at 7 o’clock in the morning. George’s letter printed. Mine not.

  1. The Waggotts, also Methodist church people, had a butcher’s shop, so presumably could change the missionary money into more convenient denominations. 

  2. Jack: usually  mentioned in conjunction with Hilda, evidently Jack’s wife and the mother of this new baby. See Hilda disambiguation page.
