14th October 1943

Lovely morning, pale blue sky, fog in the valley with a ruddy sun rising through it.  7am news said “Bombs on East Anglia - no casualties.”

Left just after 7 to take a breast collar over to Joy, for the Arab.  Moorhouse's men were lifting potatoes in the field next to the house, and were sitting by the roadside in the fog, eating their breakfast round a fire.

Had breakfast at Sherbourne Mill, and then took some butter and cream in for poor Mrs. Savage, who is dying.  Got to office at 9.15.  Meant to go to Doctor's this morning, but could not face it, and too much to do anyway.  Sadler [of the War Agricultural Executive Committee] came in with Mr. Gerald Strutt.  Was very friendly.
