Saturday, 9 p.m. (14 July 1917)

Am sitting with a pint of beer in a little wayside inn.  After roamed about, did another sketch and found my way hitherward – inward – backward.  The usual gathering of local characters, gossiping slowly in broad Lancashire, smoking and enjoying their pint-pots.  Their local knowledge extends about one mile.
