July 1924

Wednesday 23rd   It was a fine day.  Willie & Grace brought a taki [sic:  taxi]  to take me out of the hospital, it did not take us long to get to the wharf, had not to wait  long for a boat which went straight over to Devonport, there was a taxi on the wharf which we engaged which soon took us up to Mr Wallaces where I received a hearty welcome, Alma was away and Mrs Simpson was keeping Mrs W company.  I was soon sitting in an easy chair before a good fire and enjoying afternoon tea.

Saturday 26th   I had a relapse, could not pass water, so had to call Dr Bennett in and he relieved me with a catheta.
Mr Wallace went to the chemists and got another catheta as mine was too flimsy and he relieved me several times.

Sunday 27th  &  Monday 28th   Mr Wallace used the catheta on me.

Tuesday 29th  I could pass water naturally and have done ever since.
