1915 – March 29

Newton Abbott to see Mr. Bayliss about Galfrid. Soldiers looking smart and quite decent officers. Daisie is working herself to death packing, with an awful influenza cold and a bad toe.


1914 – July 18th

Oh, it’s grand to be back in glorious Devon and I feel very happy. Susanna joined us yesterday at Taunton and we all arrived at 5.30. The carriage was waiting and drove us out to Green. Leo [son, b. 9th Sept 1902] looking very well and jolly. To-day Fardie [Stalky’s father-in-law] and I drove in to Newton Abbott and Daisie went out calling with her mother.
