June

Wednesday 9th June

Was roused from my slumber by hearing "The Stage is coming" and was up just in time to bid George Clarke "Good bye". He is going down to Florida to see Sid and will be likely to stay there if the climate suits him. Robert (his brother) is also going as far as New York, there to seek employment as business is dull here at present. Drove the sheep down to "Sandy's" after breakfast.
