Took lovely Penelope to see the film “Major Barbara” at the “Regal” this afternoon. Wonderfully done, perhaps not quite so entertaining as “Pygmalion”. P. enjoyed it immensely. The film “Target for Tonight” was also shown, which I did not like at all, although P. did.
Afterwards drove her back [to Dedham] with old Bob. It took one and a quarter hours, but the old man went wonderfully. Lovely little girl at the Land Settlement, with red hair and very blue eyes, about 15 I should think. Drove old Bob straight back, 15 miles right off, and he did it well.
