John Morrison Torrens

11.3.1877 to 1944

Diary Extracts

My grandfather, John Morison Torrens (1877.03.11 - 1944.02.22) kept a diary. Only extracts of it remain and (being a pharmacist) JMT wrote in that hand decipherable only to doctors and pharmacists. These extracts were transcribed by my father, Robert George Torrens, himself a Dental Surgeon. There may be reading errors in my father's transcript - in particular, I am not sure about some of the exact dates - as they ae not in chronological order.

The diary notes have been combined with other documentary evidence in my possession. Because this is therefore a composite record, I have made a 'Source' column. This is a key to the record's source as follows:
