Journal Entry – Sunday April 15th 1917

The Winter has returned again. Last week we had snow most days & a few blizzards & thunderstorms thrown in, & an icy wind. It is too depressing for words.

Mary came home on Thursday in holy week & stayed until Monday. Even appeared on Monday. He is going to France to work in canteens. We had a fine Easter morning, but later in the day the good old hail etc returned.

America has now declared war & on Easter Monday we began our big push & have gone forward & taken many prisoners & gains etc. The news is very cheery.

Yesterday the Worthington’s motored over from Exeter bringing Charlotte who has come to stay for a time.
