1965, the year that changed my life
The “waiting meeting”
Perhaps Tuesday 25th May 1965
1. Judging by the postmark, (Monday) “9.45AM 24 MAY 1965”, I would have received Pam’s second letter the following day, Tuesday. She had written it the previous day, Sunday.
This seems to relate to the abortive telephone call mentioned in her previous letter.
The weather’s gorgeous here today. What’s it like in Blackpool? I’m sitting in the garden writing this letter before Sunday School.One of the “girls” in their party turned out to be Mary, whom I have already described in not very favourable terms.[more]
We think it’s a good idea, if you or Chris aren’t going anywhere, you could come down for Whit. You could come about Saturday tea-time then we would have all Sunday and Monday. We could go out for the day on Monday somewhere. Write and tell me what you think.For what happened in that Youth Meeting, if I have got the chronology right, see the previous story The “waiting meeting”.
I will close now, John.But Peter, understandably, didn’t come along with Chris and me to the Williamses’ that Whitsuntide. I suppose I mentioned it to him, but he declined to come.
2. The “Love, Pam” of the first letter had now been upgraded to “All my love”, echoing, I imagine, what I had written on both my letters.
 For the identity of the “another three girls”, see Holiday in Scarborough — Day One, par.8.Pamela’s third letter
