Lil and I have both got colds, but she went to hospital for her treatment and the boil is much better.

Wilma and Lil slept here

Lil's cold heavy and Dr Moncrieff who saw her says she ought to stay in bed for the next three days.

I felt seedy all day. Went to Sadler's Wells where Geraldine met me, to see The Rape of Lucretia by Benjamin Britten. A very fine performance but I felt too tired to enjoy it properly.

Lil's cold better. I felt rotten and stayed in bed all morning. I got Mrs Neal to do the necessary shopping and cooking for us. Mabel came out to tea and helped with Lil's tray, etc.

Dr Moncrieff came to see Lil and found her much better, but advised bed for another day. I felt poorly and got her to see me too, and she has prescribed and is to see me again next week. She finds me overtired but nothing organically wrong.

Sylvia strong left a lovely basket of flowers , french beans, oranges and eggs - also the book of Irish songs she had promised to lend me.
