No “•” is recorded for today, and correspondingly the diary entry says: P[raise] t[he] L[ord]. Good day!; and re the visit to Alec Tee’s campaign meeting it says: Great! Felt good!
GOOD DAY!! PTL
Got C. Course back from Jones.
Went Alec Tee. Great!
FELT GOOD! Jessy and

How different the tone of this letter is, from the one received on Wednesday 5th January 1966! My dealings with Jones during the school summer holidays were conducted by post: I don’t recall any visit of Jones to my house; and I was presumably still persona non grata in the Jones household after The Apple Incident three years before.
11, Park Road,
Mr J. E. Cooper,
226 Fleetwood Road South,
Dear Mr. Cooper,
Thank you for the Course.
I have completed the question sheet and witnessed
to three people. One has had very encouraging results,
and he said that he realised that he needed to be saved and
would think over a tract that I gave him. The other two,
both friends of mine, have not so far proved to be responding
but I am going to keep the pressure on them, but not too
Trusting that this course meets with your fullest
I am, sir, your most obd’t servant,
D. C. J ones.
P.S. If you are going to write stiff formal letters to me
then I shall write stiffer and more formal ones back as
witness the above.
Going to Rochdale Thursday & then
camping so do not send course
till 13 inst. Will witness to somebody
in Rochdale. (vile curses on this
