28th April 1945

Up early, fine and cold, and got into Colchester by 9.30.  Went straight to 66 Winnock Road, and found Father very well.  Stayed over an hour – then went to Holly Trees and saw Poulter, who had no particular news.  Went on to Essex County Standard office, saw dear Mary Ralling and had a talk with Hervey Benham.  Lunch at Last’s with Diana.  Home again in the afternoon and stayed there to tea.  The old man in great form.
Left at 7, and cycled out to Dedham,  Long talk with Marjorie Sisson about Bourne Mill.  Hard to saw what can be done.
