A Diary Begins: October 8, 2015

Woolf's Appointment Diaries, offered for sale at Sotheby's, December 2104
Monday 8 October [1917]
This attempt at a dairy is begun on the impulse given by the discovery in a wooden box in my cupboard of an  old volume, kept in 1915, & still able to make us laugh at Walter Lamb.  This therefore will follow that plan -- written after tea, written indiscreetly, & by way I note here that L. has promised to add his page when he has something to say. . . 
(D1 55)
