The Diary in December

Votes for Women!

The flu epidemic continues to devastate the world.

December 1st – 10th

The flu epidemic rages. No interest shown in the coming election, but Wynne exercised by articles about Germany and the returning troops.

December 11th – 16th

Election Day on 14th. Women Vote for the first time! “I, a mere woman, went to record my vote”.

December 17th – 23rd

The children are home for Christmas. Preparations begin in earnest, and the charity Hospital party goes off well.

December 24th – 31st

A peaceful Christmas at last, and teh first dance in four years. The election returns a Coalition, but the MP Wynne voted for gets in. Postage costs complained about.
