Artefact

Griff is grateful that the air raid warning has passed and can now continue reading his book.
He writes to Ida reminiscing about when he would visit the Saturday afternoon cheap shows in Manchester. The only ones he remembers seeing with her is when she had caught a terrible cold from Hilda Collens.
He hopes the black cloud in the sky is "dismal enough to frighten the Nazis away for two whole days at least."
He hopes that the Hallé are able to continue but even if they can't he still would like to meet up with her on Sunday afternoons.
