1965, the year that changed my life
Pamela’s sixth letter
Perhaps Thursday 24th June 1965
Pam’s next letter appears to be dated “23/6/65” (a Wednesday), and she mentions needing to “catch the post”, in which case I might have received the letter on Thursday 24th June. (In fact, it is not clear whether the “3” in “23” overwrites a “1”, or whether a “1” overwrites the “3”. I have assumed, though, that the date on the letter is the 23rd. The postmark is illegible and so gives no clues.)
It appears that Chris and I did not take up Pam’s invitation in her letter of 14th June,[more] and that I just paid her a fleeting visit one day. It could be that this was the visit on which I told her Nicholas Bhengu’s story of the woman who saved her baby at the cost of her own life.
 Nicholas Bhengu’s story: See Pamela’s third letter.
When I visited Pam she must have asked me about Mr. Gooding’s condition, and I must have told her that I had no news but would ask after him. Then in my letter, presumably, I reported some improvement.
That is a coincidence about the name of your friend’s house.On Tuesday 22nd June 1965, the Davies family — Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Davies and their sons Trevor and Grant — moved from their bungalow at 10 Laurel Drive, Thornton, to a two-storey, detached house in Briar Road, Thornton. I must have mentioned in a letter to Pam that Trevor was about to move house — she had met him briefly[more], after all, so knew who I was referring to — but my chief interest in telling her was that the name of the house he was moving to was Sharon.
