Fine, cool, and then began to get warmer. Harvest may be saved yet. The press today now tells us definitely that the danger from ‘divers’ ought to end within a fortnight. Find it very hard to believe. Allied advance is being slowed down, but quite a lot of people think the war will end in October or November. How curious if it should end while I am on holiday. News now reported of enormous danger done to Staple Inn, Holborn, a terrible disaster. Sisson used to have rooms there before the war.
This evening went to see “Gone With The Wind”. A really magnificent show. Did not get out until nearly 10. The American Civil War fascinates me. As a general rule, people do not realise that it was one of the most terrible wars in history.
Bed at 11, hoping for a quiet night.
