Monday 5th July 1937

Useless though pleasant half hour with the lady in the Southchurch Road shop. She is 32, she is understanding and vivacious.
And she is engaged. Curious, after two conversations, we already seem to know each other.

Afterwards I cycled out to Hawkwell and called on Eastern Star Products.
My first Synthetics sale! A trial order worth about £10. The Firm is very keen on Synthetics. Once established they lead to steady, non-seasonal business. Telephoned the order to Mr Reddall. “By jove!” he suddenly cried, as I laconically read out the list of materials, “I bet you’re bucked about this!”
