Thick white morning frost which was not dispelled till midday. Very cold cloudy day. Miss Dickson* came to do the cleaning as usual. In afternoon to Russell Road to inquire about Fred Spooner; he has not yet been operated on. Walked home through Wimbledon and along rail path. Ciss went to Tolworth.**
* So a normal Friday's work for the young housemaid.
**This would be for tea with her other brother, Albert, and his wife, Lily.
