27 April 1942: wind shakes house

27 Mon. Just the same wild, bright weather, the wind sometimes makes the house shudder. The ground is parched and plants not established are drying up. Fitted alternative grid-rectification to radiogram, should be better on the short waves. To Merton in afternoon to do shopping. Met Alan Spooner also Mrs.Child and her brother. Relaid other side path in garden.

On this day: Gandhi's non-violence proposal rejected by All-India Congress.  In USA, Roosevelt put country's economy on full war mode.
