Friday 18th May 1917

It was a very fine day. In the morning I went down for the mail. Afterwards went to see Willie & Dave who have just lighted their charcoal pit also to see Arthur Greenwood ploughing. In the evening there was a welcome to Willie Knaggs who has returned from the war wounded, I attended, someone from nearly every house were there, the ladies provided a sumptuous supper. I played 500 on the stage, we spent a very pleasant evening.
