Cloudy but fine. Committee at Birch today. Got a lift all the way back to Lawford in Stanley Webb’s car. Talked about blacksmiths and harness-makers. He is very keen to get travelling smiths established, and mentioned the work done by Ruston of Bradfield, who covers a wide area. Cold shoeing can never satisfactorily take the place of hot shoeing.
Spent the evening mounting photos.
