Griff writes to Ida discussing the arrangement of tickets for a concert, who is and isn't able to come.
"I haven't taken you to a 'blackout' service!" at the church and remarks that the concert season is very short. Regarding the church choir, he writes that "a few suitable attendances by me at evening service will calm the ire of the old war-horses in the choir" since he left to focus on his singing with the Hallé. However, with more people leaving there bass singers are becoming increasingly outnumbered, he asks her "can you sing bass as well as play it?"
He invites her to the cinema and jokes that "I hope Philip falls all the way downstairs and can't take you out."
