Journal Entry – Sunday September 16th 1917

Yesterday Ellis & I dug up the potatoes (see April 29) they were a good crop although some diseased, all through the country, there has been a great outburst of gardening, everyone having allotments & growing vegetables. Consequently there is almost a glut of potatoes, which is a good thing in a way. I hope to keep mine until the Spring & then send them to a hospital.

Some pilgrims sisters arrived here yesterday & are spending a few days in the parish going round visiting the people & holding prayer meetings, one is a Mrs Rouse be who has been a missionary in S Africa, & is now living temporarily at Ottery, & the other comes from Seaton is called Miss Mayo.

    A fascinating read so far. Your address was given to me by a recently met friend on Holiday in Scotland. I need to spend time with this account of wartime in another era!

    No further comment until I have digested more of the diary.
