Tuesday 21st September 1937

The outlook seemed brighter today. A memo from the Firm stated I was to have £78 per annum, running expenses for the car. 30/- a week; princely allowance! Hope it’s paid weekly… This makes my cost to the firm, £5-10-0 per week. The turnover next year must justify this.

Smith, of Macstan gave me a lift up Eastwood Road. He of course, knew about the Eastern Star business, said that they’d probably pay 15/- in the £1.

Country round today. The car had been treated overnight by the mechanic (only 4/6d) and ran beautifully. Wickford, Billericay, Great Baddow. I mentally compared the day with those laborious cycle rides.
