Wed 18 Feb 1942: holding balloon down

Severe black frost; dull day fearful icy blast. To grocers in morning also to see the new balloon at the camp; was surprised to see two men only were able to hold it down on the ground; must be well streamlined. Made new speech coil but cannot tell if successful yet and am waiting a day for the varnish to dry. Letter from Uncle Tom. Replied and also wrote him a humourous poem.
