Felt better. Writing all morning and then to Dedham. (First Bank Holiday for years when we have not had a Committee meeting). Mrs Sisson not very well, so did not stay many minutes. This evening went over to Sherbourne Mill, and saw a delightful book of Caldecott drawings, the story of “Merrilegs” and Miss Diana Wood, all a sheer delight. A.J. Munnings told Joy that it was these Caldecott drawings which first set him on his career as a horse-painter.
Had supper there. Joy’s cousin is now going back to London, without any great enthusiasm. A lot of talk of rockets and their possible effect. Took Parry a copy of May’s book, which he was very pleased to have.
Leaving there, went over to Higham, but Jacquie was out – noticed her cycle at Ida’s but would not go in. Boxted at 11.30, and to bed.
