Diary sub-note: 1879. William Howitt, author, died
Daddie sent me some peaches & a P.C. [postcard] Played goal in games. I had a sum right in arith. Stuck pictures of “David” in my book & cut out more pictures. Started Vol: II.
P.C. is an abbreviation of ‘postcard’
Arith is an abbreviation of arithmatic
I assume the ‘Vol: II’ refers to her second book of pictures of David, who was the current King of England, Edward VIII (Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David. Known to his close family as David).
