Griff describes his journey to Ida, by boat, made somewhat awkward by having to share a cabin. He pledges that "next time, I shall demand a cabin de luxe and sleep in both of its real beds alternately, hour by hour, with a private bathroom." He wonders if she too saw the "Jaffa orange moon".
He describes some scenes from the boat's departure and characters thereof.
He'll book tickets for the cinema and would like to go for a walk with her. He marvels at her capacity to organise things such as the Matthay School of Music.
He debates with himself on whether he should volunteer for war service locally should the time arise, but recognises that it is very possible he will get called up the army anyway.
