I rewrote #1 into #2 using "just." Is #2 correct sentence? If so, can I express the similar meaning as #1?
Here are the sentences:
#1 I lost the gloves which my father had bought me only the previous day.
#2 I lost the gloves which my father had just bought me the previous day.
I'm looking forward to a comment.

Second, #2 differs from #1 in that it clearly expresses the gloves were just bought the previous day.
All the best,
