Saw George’s wife [Maisie Farmer] today in the Regal, and had tea with her there. She is worried about George, who is not enjoying life in the RAF. She told me that last weekend Mary Hulbert was in the town to see Aunt Grace Farmer. She never came to see me. How odd if I passed her in the street without knowing it. Ten years is a very long time.
Mary Hulbert had been EJR's girlfriend during the early 1930s. She was a cousin of EJR's schoolfriend, George Farmer.
