22nd November 1939

Went to the Tovells’ to supper tonight. Mrs T. is a rather pathetic little woman, terribly worried by the war. They are all leaving Colchester soon, as papa has a job down in Cornwall, building army camps. He used to have a very good business in Colchester, and only broke through sheer hard luck. I well remember his horses going down Magdalen Street in the evenings.
