Friday 11 April 1919
"It is pay day today.
I bought the Magnet, Gem & Popular, The Children's Newspaper, a doughnut, some Cherry Cider, a bar of chocolate and 1pk of peanuts.
I bought a bar of soap, a box of Robin Starch, 3 Hudson's* and a table of Zebra black lead**.
As I was going to work this morning I bought the Mirror.
I went out in the evening and played football with Antram.
I saw Mr Weller tonight and I told him how I was getting on.
I found a knife today.
Weather: - No rain to speak of. Showery. Cold. No snow."
* Bars of Hudson's soap - a very well known brand, because it's inventor Robert Spear Hudson made great use of advertising.
** A lead based paste which was used for blackening fireplaces.
