8th May 1942
Lowering clouds! Rain! It began at 8 this morning, and soon fell steadily. The wind had gone back to NE, and the temperature was many degrees cooler than yesterday. It is wonderful how old or delicate people manage to keep alive in this climate. This will bring the grass on tremendously.
Felt rather ill all day, for the first time for 10 days. Rang up Mrs. Parrington tonight, and discussed the possibility of going over to Lawford [to live there].
