Pocock's diary for 1881. Though the diary is printed for the year of 1880, Pocock used it to record his activities and other events for 1881. On the first page is written, "My diary is that for 1881 and all dates must be altered for 1880." It consists of short, occasional handwritten entries; one tipped in document of Pocock's confirmation for 10 May 1881; one tipped in original sketch by Pocock of the Logan Rocks at Tintagel Castle, Land's End in England; and handwritten records of his finances. Recorded entries include specific personal events such as his confirmation and his uncle George's death; lectures he attended at the School of Submarine Telegraphy); activities; church attendance; visits; travel logs such as going to see his father in London; work schedule at shipyards; and jokes. He records his cash accounts at the back of the diary.
