7 September 1914; Monday

Not much to do at work. Alf back and Frank away. Finished early. I had a bad cold and went straight to Dr Blair’s at night. I asked him to sound me and he said I was pretty sound about the heart and had nothing much * my weakness. Went down to meeting at night and received a share of bills to deliver. Came up with Fred Waggott and talked of the war.

News from the front a little brighter. Dorothy’s 2nd birthday. 3rd casualty list 4796.
