15th December 1944
Letter from Wisbech – I have been appointed Curator and Librarian.
Tonight went out to Lt. Rivers, to see the Roses who were delighted, but Stuart very dubious about my leaving
Colchester. ‘Phoned to the Wisbech “White Lion” from the
call-box at Boxted, and got a bed for a couple of nights, which ought to give
me time to get settled in somewhere.
Shall certainly try for the Crescent.
Stayed talking to the Roses until past 11. No alarm, although a fine night.
Back to Woodside, bed at quarter to one, and lay awake wondering if I have done right.
