Tuesday 26th January 1915

It was a very fine day. After breakfast I went down for the mail, I received a letter from my brother Henry in England, he informed me that my brother Chris has died last November thus leaving Henry & I the only two remaining of a very large family.

There was a picnic at Lloyd’s point today, Grace & Gertie went over to be present and staid the night. I staid at home and did odd jobs.
