9 May 1914; Saturday

Got up about 8 o’clock. Wet morning. Busy all morning. Finished about 2 o’clock. Played the piano and shaved. Went across to Miss Keedy’s with Charlie and Charlie tried two songs over. Bought new tie and pair of new suspenders1. Went to town with Joe again at night. Went into Dale’s and Joe bought a stick. Lily came back home with Willie. They arrived about 9 o’clock. She is to stay at Whittakers’ until they are married.

  1. Suspenders were to keep socks up – not braces for trousers, as in the American usage.
