April 4th 1936

Diary sub-note: 1774. Oliver Goldsmith, poet and dramatist, died

Had letters from Daddie, Andy & Joy. Cambridge won the boat race. I sat up in Meg’s room for a bit after tea & then had a bath.

Diary entry April 4th 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Cairn Terrier: THE CAIRN TERRIER. These very attractive and popular little dogs have aroused a good deal of controversy in the canine world since their appearance in England in 1909. Some authorities insist that they are true Skye Terrier, whose name has been foisted on to the long-haired variety. Actually they originally appeared at Crufts as short-haired Skyes. Be that as it may, they are very charming little animals, full of vivacity, and with an appealing friendliness. Colours vary from brindle to fawn, and, like the Bedlington, the coat is harsh outside, with underlying softness.
