1914 – August 4th (Tuesday)

The War is on us and to save a rush on the banks they have declared a Bank Holiday till Friday – so no one has any money – Daisie and Bettie and I went to Paignton to see Tinnie and I had to borrow a sovereign from my father-in-law. Daisie has 6d [sixpence] and that is all. Dollie [Daisie’s sister] has just managed to escape from France.
