Griff playfully accuses Ida of purposefully losing at cards. He's been to choir practice at Birch and even managed to get there on time, "much to the surprise of all." He made straight to the library, "lifting eight books therefrom; have no intention of reading them," they are just for reference and a single play they contain that "I have always wanted to see this but have been thwarted, so I shall now be able to read it and imagine the rest."
He talks of plans to go to Southport for the choir picnic, all of them in five cars "either slim or friendly." He bristles at remarks made about his eating habits.
He's glad to hear more of the wedding she attended but "cannot accept the Stanton Village way of calling it 'Stahnton' and in September shall probably visit the place and walk up and down all of the streets (both of them, that is) shouting the name with a very short 'a' indeed."
He admits he likes cricket, "there are many things so graceful about a spot of good cricket" and to being a Manchester City fanatic.
