Before 1 o’clock this morning a big flight of planes went over the town, but no alarm sounded. It is very terrifying to be in bed and hear them go over. This evening the engines were blowing up the little wooden bridges in the Park, of all absurdities. Beautiful hot weather, although it makes me feel rather ill.
