1966



The diary-entry for today is as follows:

Lost pumps so did not
do P.E.
Prayer meeting at
night—rather quiet. Went to
Audrey’s at night—got a
lift home. Read Psalms, and
got a good blessing from them.
Pumps—also called plimsolls: rubber-soled lace-up canvas shoes for sports.

Letter from Ellen Dyson, postmarked “HYDE, CHESHIRE, 7.30 PM 10 FEB 1966”





Barbara: See Chris’s comment on Holiday in Scarborough — Day One. In it, he says, “Barbara came to visit me in Thornton.” Evidently, he also visited her in Broadbottom, for Ellen Dyson wrote, “I told Chris…”

I either didn’t write back to Ellen Dyson, or I did once and Audrey disapproved. I was really shocked and shaken nearly four years later to read in a Sunday newspaper that she had been killed.
