Diary

Nov. 16
All city regiments notified to be at armories at 2.30 this afternoon. As soon as notified the men had to rush home from their employment, don their uniforms and hustle to the armouries. The sight of men lacing their boots and putting on their uniforms on the street cars caused much alarm among the general public and rumour had it that the Germans were on their way from Detroit to invade Canada.

Bought new overcoat on Yonge st. Friday the 13th of November. Cost $10.50; Regular price $23.50. Bailiff's sale accounts for reduction.
