Saturday 13th March 1937

Sales Promotion and Paripan offices. Reports and discussions. Mr Insoll, Markham, Mr Randall, Mr Reddall. My self confidence is increasing. I deprive ironical satisfaction from such incidents as this:

Markham said, “I think Dawson’s the right sort for the job. Of course, I suppose you need the well educated type for representatives with this company?”

“Oh yes,” said Mr Reddell, “all our representatives are well educated” Deep inside, I laughed and laughed (like little Audrey) because they did not know I left school at 13 and later sunk to the depths of the dole queue; a slummy little street with children asprawl in the gutter; a house with a bath in the kitchen.
