22 April 1914; Wednesday

Got up about 7.45. Not much to do at work first thing. Fine day. Finished in good time. Played a little. Wrote for job at a Pallion engineering office1. Walked out last thing. Sent away football coupons2.

  1. Pallion (if correct): district at W. edge of town, on S. bank of Wear; Short Bros. shipyard was there. 

  2. “Football coupons” seems fairly clear in the shorthand, but I don’t know what it means; it would not have been football pools. (DL)
