Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 290
[Tuesday 17 October 1916]
Laura & I went to Walsall to meet Major Brace a friend of Dollys. Sleeping at the Hotel while I'm away. Brace is bloated, fat, & drinks too much whisky- I do not think he will live to be an old man- Laura is afraid of him.
I return tomorrow.
Brace is Recruiting Officer here & draws a Major's Pay- He never mentioned the son in law or anyone, Laura is much happier living by herself in London she is a slave when with him-
Young Charlie has made his will.
