Monday 16th November 1914

It rained last night and early this morning, it was not very heavy but it has freshened up everything. The Jersey Cow (Kate) calved a bull calf.

I went down to the village in the pm to post letters, saw Mr Mauder M.P who is going to speak this evening. Heard with regret of the death of Lord Roberts while on duty in France. We all went to Mr Mauders meeting in the evening, Mr Jas Greenwood occupied the chair.  A vote of thanks and confidence was carried.
