Still terribly cold.
Miss Joanna Round, our chief’s daughter began voluntary office work today [at the Essex War Agricultural Committee District office in Colchester]. She is tall, fair, not bad looking, but paints her finger nails and wears hideous little bracelets. Her clothes are good and look well. She and Nott are old friends, and spent a considerable time talking hunting and various County Balls and dances. Apart from that she is not at all snobbish or proud – I know in fact she does forestry work on the Birch Hall Estate.
