I book a room at the Savoy, a double with a bath, and Monica and I end up there after dinner with Bill at Quaglinos. On Sunday she gives me tea and then I run dinner for Bill and his American dame and Bert Mann at the Brevet Club. I give them both German beer mugs. Monday I meet Mama and send her off to Elstree with J.J. and Monica gives me supper and sends me packing about 10.30pm. Tuesday I take her to ‘Three’s a family’ and then we go home and ‘Whoa!’
Yesterday Peggy and Mama and I go down to Farnham to see Francis (JDW: Peggy is his brother Hugh’s widow and Francis is his niece) but she won’t speak, we miss the train back, and I just get to the Brevet Club in time to give Uncle George a drink, and then go down to Chelsea and eat Monica’s tinned crab. I get to bed early and feel fine today, though with a bit of a cold. I get a bicycle tyre but the Customs will no doubt get it, but I cannot get Monica and wings brooch under 5 guineas anywhere.
Today I share a drink with Baffy (JDW: Baffy Dugdale) in the evening and later hope to visit Chelsea! We have a wonderful breakfast in bed in the Savoy on Sunday morning, and Monica manages to get her face cream on before I see her in the morning, so that I do not get the shock that she, not I, expected!!
