Journal Entry – Friday February 9th 1917

Only 7 degrees last night. Heard from Father describing Gerald’s wedding. It was a very quiet affair.

This morning Dorothea and I both noticed a curious noise. At first I thought it was a Aroplane but it was too steady & continuous & sounded like the sea. Balsdon told us it was the East wind roaring on Dartmoor & this evening after tea we went to the front door & heard it again, a steady rustling noise of wind & yet it was quite still here.

Elizabeth & I walked to Milton to inquire at the Post Office about the War Loan.

America is still annoyed, but the other neutral countries are not going to come in. Mr Gerard has been detained at Berlin until such time as the German Ambassador Count Bernstorff has left Washington in safety.
