Artefact

Griff tells Ida that he and Dorothy (Pilling?) loved their cards "and much to her amusement I was able to demonstrate without any lack of decorum or loss of good taste, that my rompers of the moment were, in fact, supported in one place by the ever-useful safety pin." Classy.
Ida has sent instructions to her sister Elsa, possibly about the household, and Elsa is "viewing with some alarm and trepidation certain portions of the (to one) deeply absorbing itinerary."
He talks about enjoying P.G. Wodehouse who he regrets had "made himself so unpopular during the war". Turns out he sent broadcasts over enemy frequencies and radio when he was living in France during the German occupation, which some saw as treasonous.
