11 Aug 1943: Dad unwell
Fred's Dad at Tolworth.
Probably 1943 - but probably not today.
11 Wed. Rather warm; cool evening. Cloudy, some sunshine, boisterous. Did shopping in morning, going also to Morden. Cycled to Tolworth in afternoon to see Dad as he has been unwell but is somewhat better to-day; a hard journey on account of strong wind. Met Mrs. Conrad in morning.
