Week of 27 February 1950

Tuesday, 28 February 1950

47 Hamilton Terrace

Reg better and left for Folkestone this morning but I had a phone this evening to say he had gone on to Dover. I worked with Mary Macaulay this morning - then lunched with Mabel, and after a short rest we went to Leicester Square to see The Blue Lamp - Reggie's present to us. Very good.

Got home about 6.30.

Wednesday, 1 March

D. Ellinger turned up about 6 o'clock, and after a pleasant meal, she, Christa and I bussed to the Albert Hall where we found Audrey Wethered and Ruth Browning already in Alice Parson's box. The London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham in a Mozart-Haydn-Dvorak programme. Very pleasing.

Sunday, 5 March

Went to St Pauls where Alan Paton, author of Cry the Beloved Country, was preaching. Very interesting but rather a strain to hear as the whole centre of the cathedral was reserved for students.
