Tuesday 13th April 1937

Packy and I did a country round and had a day of frustration. Reported 11 calls but actually made about 15. In some cases doors were locked and buyers were definitely out. However three reports were lengthy. Why? The first was a complaint from one of our old customers. The second was on a job at an old country house – a rather difficult job, with damp, non-cavity walls. The third was about a builder (cold canvass) who had a wonderful priming for new woodwork – not a Paripan product unfortunately. He was very enthusiastic and went into details. He sure sold us the idea of that priming!

Returning to Southend in the late afternoon, Packy and I laughed ironically. “What a bloody day!”
