Friday 14th July 1939

Morning – peaceful calls on the short country journey. Afternoon, frantic attempt to get a share, at least, of the schools contract. Desperate nervy dashes backwards and forwards, in Southend, don’t think I’ll get anything from Garforth and Wellham this year – the local manufacturers, Starline, are a menace on this type of contract – but will get the order for two schools by Hughes of Southend if the firm accepts the price I quoted. Prices seem to get keener each year.

I heard Lois had got her situation but was unable to stop at Oakdene long as I was still in a hell of a rush. Arranged to take her up to the White Hart tomorrow.
