Mild, very dismal; torrents of rain without a break till evening. Miss Dickson called to clean the house as is usual on Friday mornings. Spent part of the morning and afternoon shopping in the rain. Dr Milum called in evening. Alan Spooner called while he was here; the doctor was interested in Alan and asked about his education at the Rutlish School.** Varnished the new 14 ins propeller: looks very nice.
**Note: Rutlish School, Merton dates back to 1895. See http://www.rutlish.merton.sch.uk
