Griff writes to Ida pleased that the radio has rewarded him some "very high class" musical broadcasts. He promises that "When a Packet has been made out of my first play, our first play, I shall buy a gramophone" reasoning that "the electrical recording is so good nowadays that I could do with a nice large library of records."
He discusses concerts and meeting up as well as the card score board, and relays compliments to Ida that he as told by a mutual acquaintance.
He describes his writing desk and while he has a picture of her father on it, "most unfortunately, there isn't a small photo of you."
He asks her "What on earth do you think of some Modern Music?"
Diana, a flautist, told him some tips for learning or playing "particularly unpleasant quick runs."
He knows she is busy with admin at the Matthay School of Music, he hopes everything else doesn't worry her too much.
He discusses learning songs for an audition, cinema offerings and concerts coming up.
