Thursday 27th October 1938

Orders yesterday – nil. Today, turnover was £1-14-0. Called also on pleasant Mr Sprent of JC Ingram Ltd. He wrote out a neat little letter to my firm and gave it to me, for delivery to the firm :-

“You have on order 1cwt. P U/Coat Paste White… We shall esteem it a favour if you will hold this over until further advice, as, owing to the political position – we being in a danger zone – we have ceased to build.”

Obtained copies of “The Southend Standard” and “Southend Times” this morning. Both had printed my grumblings, The “Standard” in an obscure corner, the “Times” on the front page.
