Griff half chastises Ida for burning the first attempt at a letter to him and leaving another unfinished, insisting that he would have liked to read them anyway.
His singing practice hasn't gone quite so well, "a frightful frog in the old Adam's Apple." He admires the curve of Ida's throat where her Adam's Apple prevents it from being a boring straight line. "I am merely interested in the aesthetic charm of curves in comparison with entirely uninteresting straight lines. I always fond of curves."
He obsesses over trying to get her both a letter and a card with train times in appropriate time, without crumpling both letter and card, or sending her the impersonal card without letter, or getting everything to her too early.
He offers entertainment ideas in the form of cinema and radio concerts.
