Griff writes to Ida describing his understanding of Heaton Chapel's topography, though he admits he may have gotten turned around the blizzard.
Miss Collens is taking Ida to an earlier show and then supper at the Midland, so Griff hopes he can see her later in the week.
He relays an evening with the radio and has cleared up his desk, "I am a world record holder for collecting odds and ends and placing them on top of one another. Most untidy."
He talks about a Mr Berry, who is a "remarkable gentleman, and one of the very best. He joined the Hallé Chorus about 51 years ago as an alto, sang tenor a year or two later, and is still at it."
He hopes she won't go out in the gale, "even though I know you are very hale and hearty."

With thanks to the Ida Carroll Trust
