16th July 1948: Death of a friend
16 Fri. Very mild in the afternoon, very cloudy & dull with a threat of rain and the wind tends to veer from NW to SW. To the butchers etc. in morning; to Merton to buy cats meat in afternoon. Cycle ride to Robin Hood Gate in evening. We heard with regret of the death of Mr Conley at 8.30 this morning. He had been a heart sufferer for a great many years. A very serious and conscientious man who knew his condition and made the best of very limited physical powers. Did some house cleaning including scrubbing and polishing floors.
