June 4th 1913
It has been a while since I last posted but today was important. Mama took Alice and me to Legendary 1913 Derby after behaving so well in the last month. As I am now eighteen and Alice has just turned twenty-two Mama me place a bet on the Kings Horse!! He was bound to win with his amazing jockey, Herbert Jones.
We all shushed as the race began eyeing up our horses. As they were galloping round Tottenham Corner it was almost impossible to see who was coming first but Herbert Jones still had a fair chance. But then it suddenly happened. We saw a fair haired women run across into the race track and put her hands up above her head. The horse carried on and I saw her crashing to the ground. A policeman who looked as if he had been on duty called out, ‘ Does anyone know this women’ but there was no replies.
The out her mind lady suffered from concussion in the local hospital and was later found out to be a suffragette named, Emily Wilding Davison.
