Going over Lawrence typescript.
David came: took him out shopping (because Saturday) in Tottenham Court Road.
Laura still stuck over proofs: she went to Doctor: reassured about heart & throat.[RG]
To supper with Nan & Wilfred just back from Spain, not a success.
Interrupted by phone from Nancy, who can do nothing at Bath; thinks Jenny should come up to London.
