Nice and bright most of the day, rather foggy at night.  I had part of my half day.  I left the Office at 3 o’clock and went up to Highgate to see Miss Whitbread.  I came home by the 8.35 from Euston.  Mother and I are back home again today.  Mother left Mrs White’s on Saturday and stayed at Lil’s till this morning.  Yesterday I brought Elsie with me to Chapel and she went to Rob’s to dinner and tea.  She said when she got home she had been very happy. I went to Fred’s to Dinner and Mrs Bailey’s to tea.
