Up at 10. The sky still quite overcast. After breakfast, writing, and then had to go in to
Colchester as I had promised Mother I would be home to lunch, and I also needed clean shirts, etc. Rather cold, but got warm cycling.
Had lunch, changed, and left again at 3.30. Went to
, and had tea at Sissons. Much talk about Poulter, the Museum, and the sale of Laver’s books on Thursday. I went out to try and get Mrs. Sisson some cigarettes at the “ Dedham ”, but the place is so badly managed that nobody was there, although the doors were open. Got them at the “Sun” instead. Marlborough
Left at 7, and went on to Lawford. The sky was beginning to clear at last, so hoping for a fine day tomorrow.
The Premier and Hitler are both making speeches today, the Premier being on the radio tonight after the 9 o’clock news. He is expected to speak for about an hour.
