Griff relates to Ida about his failed attempt to use pencil and a newspaper as a desk on a train to write a letter. Didn't work out.
He says that "Oxford Street looked strongly unfamiliar at 10:15am. I'm not used to it so early in the day and I had my odd 'detached' feeling; all little known streets and towns affect me so."
He was jealous of the lavish luggage at Liverpool. "About the only thing for which I care to envy people with a very great deal of money, is that the possession of such wealth enables them to travel if they wish." He wishes he could take her on holidays all over the world.
He refers to to Thomas Beecham's rehearsal with (I think) the Hallé choir. "He joked throughout and every utterance was greeted with shouts of laughter, and he finished the evening wearing one of the most self-satisfied smirks that I ever wish to see."
