The Diary in October

Weekend entertainments - and week day work: potato digging this time, struggling to feed the family.

October 1st – 9th

A strange entertainment in the Hotel hall crammed with people. Wynne feels like mutton surrounded by lambs, but enjoys the weekend house party.

October 10th – 23rd

Stores arrive from England, much welcomed, but Wynne does not approve of the new fashions.

October 25th – 31st

Potato lifting starts. Wynne worries about running out of vegetables. Much talk of revolution in the English mails.
