On Monday July 5th, we were invited down to Judge Moore’s house in County Wicklow with Miss Whelan our night nurse. It was a lovely ride and we were treated splendidly when we got to this beautiful Country House. There were a num[ber] of other soldiers there from other Hospitals and we all had tea on the lawn, arriving back at Mountjoy Square about 7.30.
July 6th. Went in Mrs Ellis’s Car with Sister Proctor to Grafton Street Picture House and aft[er] the performance her car called again and took us on to the Shelbourne Hotel (The Adelphi of Dublin) where we had a fine tea in her private room.
