Monday February 10th 1918
Letter from tea merchant Young that the country is packed with tea. No anxiety for us. To Parnham, found Ryles alone. Absurd baby came in and howled. Mr R had heard from Bishop R that the late German liner Wilhelm II, now Leviathan came into Liverpool with 7000 Americans. Pleasant twilight walk home.
Wednesday February 27th In perfect simplicity and not wishing to say anything blasphemous, the German prisoner said: “God is on our side, but you have the Americans!”
Friday March 1st 1918 To Mr Russell’s to see his peach blossom. Dear Mr Kit going on well. Sent some tea to dear Mrs Kit and ordered 6lbs for her from old Young.
