Ch [Chapter] XV1 – a very great lot of changes pointed out by Laura. Working at it all day.
Walk to Mr. Mills round Park: took him pearl headdress & earrings to reset. Bought scarf ring 1/62 & shawl pin (paste) 2/6.
Sally & Richard to supper. Painstaking talk mostly about furniture & machines. Broke corkscrew on sherry.
A little boy terrified at being locked into the Park after closing-time. The Park-keeper cheered him up by taking him along the walk and showing him that he wasn't at all the last – lots more people, including nurses3 with perambulators.
