John Edward Cooper’s Notes

HomeContentsAlphabetical listingWhom I’d like to meet in eternity…

Wednesday 10th August 1966


[overwritten by:]
Worked door-to-door
distributing in B-pool.
Alec Tee preaching.
Miserable evening
Back to before 3rd Aug.

Read Romans: “Read” is imperative; i.e., this is a note telling me to read Paul’s Epistle to the Romans.

Worked door-to-door distributing in Blackpool: My Mum used to go “distributing”: delivering handbills, advertisements or free-offer coupons door-to-door. She worked for one or two people at this, but mainly for one Mrs. West. She introduced me to this job during the school holidays.
I think this page records wages for both today’s work and that done on Thursday 11th August 1966. If that is so, I was paid a guinea a day (£1/1s, or in “new” money £1.05).

Alec Tee was Scottish, an Elim minister and evangelist who had a campaign in a marquee in a field at South Shore, Blackpool. He prayed for the sick in these meetings. I greatly amused the Wood household with my imitations of him.

Aud: I don’t know what I meant by writing Audrey’s name emphatically here.

For the first time since Tuesday 2nd August 1966, “” is recorded for today (in fact, 2 x “”), and correspondingly the diary entry says: Miserable evening. Back to before 3rd August.
