9th July 1948: Encouraging Gwennie
9 Fri. Very cold for July: very dull and cloudy with a very rough N wind. Bought the meat and other things locally also a cake. Bought a new high-tension battery at Merton; fitted it to the set with good results. Gwennie called and we played table tennis; she is improving. She beat me two games to one; of course I let her win to encourage her. Short walk along rail path in evening. The grass on the railway embankment was blazing furiously. While watching it I spoke to a delightful Devonshire man with a lovely, soft musical voice and dialect.
