Week of 12 September 1949

Monday, 12 September
47 Hamilton Terrace
Dolly Ettinger
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.
Sunday, 18 September
After the 9 o'clock news, Sir Stafford Cripps made the tremendous announcement that the pound was devalued (2 dollars 80 cents). All banks and stock exchange closed tomorrow. Bread will go up in a fortnight's time.
