Monday 6th January 1936

John called in the evening; in voluble mood. Told the interested Miss Rowlands all about various forms of bloodshed – Chinese tortures and so forth.

John and I have usually had our salary increases at co-incidental times. He’s lost no time in applying for another now. Apparently, he approached his works manager today and said, “Would it be possible for me to have a small rise?” To his horror, the manager replied without hesitation, “No, I don’t think it would be possible”. John then murmured his regrets and withdrew. Anyhow, he’s able to laugh (loudly) at it!
