Very busy morning trying to get aertex shirts for Alice. Finally succeeded.
Dolly Ettinger arrived at 6 o'clock and we had high tea and then went to the Albert Hall for the Prom Concert. Mable, her Ellen and Pamela Denniston joined us in Alice Parsons's box. Quite a pleasant concert but it did not take one off's one feet. Adrian Boult conducted.
