He talks about walks, their favourite past time, and talks cricket.
He bumped into someone who recognised him for Birch Church choir and bought a new hat.
If she can't see him he teases her that he will be useless at work, "I shall spend all Wednesday in dating tickets wrongly."
He talks books, mentions reading Sir Henry Wood's autobiography and remarks on the feud with Thomas Beecham, his rival conductor.
