March 28th 1936

Diary sub-note: 1854. Crimean War declared
S.R. 5.45, S.S. 6.26

Dr Ward came. Started to have measles. Daddie rang up. Cammie’s father came.

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Bull Terrier: THE BULL TERRIER. Here’s a real sportsman of British descent, his ancestors being the Bulldog and the old White English Terrier (the latter a magnificent breed now only seen in old sporting prints, alas). Until the laws of the land and The Kennel Club forbade, his ears were cropped to a point, to his advantage when fighting, and adding to his varmint appearance. Originally he showed black and tan markings, but now he is generally whole white.
