Wednesday 24th February 1915

Breakfast in bed. Rose 10.30. Am beginning to feel better.
Went walk in afternoon, out about 1 ½ hrs. Felt weak. Very tired.
Evening Coliseum. Good picture, “The end of the bridge”. Sir Markham challenges coal trade by fixing maximum price of 15/- per ton for coal at his collieries which produce 4,000,000 tones per annum. Coal in London £2 per ton owing to freights 13-17/- per ton. Rotten shame. Wish government would smash up the rings. Wheat  down 6d per qr[quarter] at Liverpool.
