Week of 9 September 1946

Monday, 9 September

Wilma slept here

47 Hamilton Terrace

I still feel poorly. A woman came to see me about morning work, and I took up her reference but it was not satisfactory. Got a spade in Edgware Rd and when Wilma came back from her work she cut the lawn edge - a very big improvement.

Wilma slept here. Also Lil le M

Mrs Neal came to give the house a good clean up. Lil arrived about 3.30 and is settled down comfortably.

Wilma has a bad cold.

Lil's doctor called for her early and took her to the Homeopathic Hospital for Infra Red Treatment.

I rested in the afternoon. After tea we went to St Marylebone Parish Church for the service in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Robert and Elizabeth Browning. Mabel was also there and we met afterwards. In the evening I had a distressing phone conversation with Lily Carr about Ruth.
