Friday February 12th

On this day 19 years ago I first saw the light in Vincent Square. In a month we moved here so I may almost claim to have been a Grantite from birth. It seems a great age and ‘I think I may say’ like Pepys on a similar occasion ‘that I am as happy a man as any in the world, for which God be praised’.

Between Schools went out and had my hair cut and having reached the age of 19 gave 2d to the man for helping me into my coat!!…

Going through the Under Changing Room today I heard an agitated conference in progress and all innocent of my presence someone being exhorted to ‘tell Laurie’! I, of course, did not hear but passed on majestically. The advice has not been taken as yet and I haven’t been told anything.
