Ida's been to Blackpool and Griff is amazed at how much energy she still has. He has plans to play cards with their friends the Bowers and politely refuses any more book recommendations for the time being as he is slowly making his way through what he has.
He thanks her for sorting out Forsyths (possibly picking up tickets or music) and "Mr Bannister crashed into the office today with a plan of the Free Trade Hall", supposedly to arrange seats for a concert. Assuming his current Hallé season ticket arrangement holds, he may be able to share some with the Matthay School of Music and of course Ida herself.
He thinks she looks wonderful after her holiday, especially as "it must be a trial dealing with the whole School and the Staff and striving to keep top of the [Rummy] League."
He's looking forward to the Municipal Concert series with William Rees conducting.
