24 February 1915; Wednesday

At work as usual. Finished in good time, but fairly busy all day. Went to Elijah1 at night in the Victoria Hall2, performed by the Vocal Union. Principals, Mr Herbert Brown, Mr Matt Newton. Madam Catherine Vincent and Miss Lottie Beaumont, were all good. Was with Helen, Olive, Winnie and Willie Whittaker. Mother, Father and Gertie there and Charlie too. I went to Whittakers’ last thing for Charlie’s things3, because he had changed before at their house.

  1. Elijah”: Mendelssohn’s very popular oratorio. 

  2. Victoria Hall: See 10 January 1914

  3. “Charlie’s things” – he was presumably in the choir.
