Thursday 15th July 1937

Am writing this at “Mansfield”, Langdon Hills, my accommodation address. Outside – rain, a storm of thunder.

Today I have made calls in Hadleigh, Benfleet and on Canvey Island. Blazing sun, sultry heat. I was very glad to get here an hour ago, have a wash, and tea, and write reports. There was a letter for me, also, which makes me feel at home.

About 10 minutes ago, the sky darkened and the storm began. Already it is much cooler and I’ve stopped perspiring for the first time since leaving Roedean this morning. Must have lost several fluid ounces of sweat, in the last few days!
