Artefact

Griff writes to Ida that the weather is better (although later he calls the weather forecaster on the radio a cad for promising showers). There is a "simply smashing sunset" and "chimney smoke going straight into the air." Sounds very Mary Poppins.
He's visited the Tatler theatre and ran into an acquaintance Kenneth Holmes who updates him on a John Done who is "now a full medico" at the Royal Infirmary.
He's been gardening and promises to drop by Ida's family home Glenluce on Lapwing Lane while she is away.
He talks about cards and giving bridge lessons to a Mrs Higgins (possibly the Carroll's housekeeper).
"Good night my darling, and don't dream of string players; it's as bad as dreaming about times-tables."
