3rd June 1941

Cold and dull, but warmer in the evening, and the sun shone. Had tea at Jacklin’s. Three women came in and sat near me. One was a middle aged country looking woman, the second a smart young lady of about 25 or 30, short black hair, smart country clothes, with a severe little green hat, and the third was a lovely “Burne-Jones” girl, about 25, with a great halo of glorious light brown hair, parted in the middle and falling softly round an exceptionally pretty face. She had large grey eyes, no lipstick and wore a black fur coat. I wonder who she was.
