22nd February 1940

I got the mail-phaeton brought in [to the Castle] today. Young Smith of Boxted towed it in behind his cart. The Museum accept it as a loan, and Hull agreed in a burst of generosity, to allow the cost of cartage out of the petty cash. I put it in the Main Hall straight away, and with the hood up it certainly looks very well.

For more information on the acquisition of the mail-phaeton, see Eric's previous diary entries on 1st February 1940 and 8th February 1940.
