Saturday 5 October
Telephone from Betty in London to say they had arrived this morning at Tilbury and that she and Marcus were coming down, so Pippa met them at Colchester and brought them back for lunch. Betty looks very well for her holiday. Polly has a bad cold.
Sunday, 6 October
Polly's cold heavy so she stayed in bed all day. I went to Edwardstone Church and took Mrs Germaine and Mr Smith from the almshouses as they wanted to attend the Harvest Thanksgiving Service and stay for Communion.
