Griff updates Ida on local cricket outcome but came home early it seems and read instead. He's reading up about Thomas Beecham, Hamilton Harty, Malcolm Sargent and Henry Wood, in Bernard Shore's "The Orchestra Speaks" - Shore the violist, not the playwright. These passages in particular interest him "having met those gentlemen in the course of choir business. Shore describes them perfectly."
He writes about architecture in Liverpool and others.
He wonders "where did my reputation for greed come from?" and talks about preferences for food.
He was horrified to be told of his rude comments to Ida earlier but declares "have no recollection at all, so you must have invented them." Now now, Griff, that's called gaslighting.
