On Saturday morning I went to the Brickfield to skate. I could go on one, but now I can go on two.

When I go to school at play-time I go in goal for Farnworth team. We have won every game this week.

Thursday night at 7.30 pm Father, Vincent and I went to a lecture on animals by Mr Rev James Woolfe.
I was interested all the night.
Vincent and I started out t. 10-10 pm for dad had not reached home.
Half way down the lane we met him he told us to go to Grandma’s till he came there.
Grandmar gave us a penny and a Rosy Apple. which we ate in the room.
When I was coming home I saw Mrs Beardmore with his wife.
We came home the the Houseing Scheme.
