Pippa arrived for a very late luncheon before dashing off to Miss Runting. Philippa turned up later from Manchester. She had been in bed with a temp of 103 but did not look too badly. Oswald arrived soon after and took her to Victoria. In the evening I rang up Bet. Barnaby is still in the Halesworth hospital but better. Reg rang up. He is still running a temp but keeps going.

Pippa rang up and told me that Philippa who has been having four hourly does of M & B is better, and the doctor is hopeful that she can start tomorrow on the 1st lap of their West Indian tour.
Saturday, 6 January
Pippa and Philippa arrived at 4 o'clock, Philippa still looking far from well and not able to eat any of the nice tea I had prepared for them.
Oswald arrived at 5 o'clock with a taxi and took them off to Fenchurch St Station en route for Tilbury where they board a boat for Rotterdam. I am afraid they will have a tossing.
