My birthday, 75 years old. Many family letters and a greetings wire from Reg, and a phone from Pont. The farm contract still not signed, though the sale is advertised for next Tuesday. Very disquieting!

I rang up Bet and heard to my great relief that the farm contract is signed at last. Alice is staying a little longer at Studley.
