Have a ride with Mr. Moore (Payton Meat Co.) to Van Horn this afternoon. Am reading ‘Goya” by Schneider – Rather like it. Finished ‘Winding Lane’ by Phillip Gibbs and A Story of Henry VIII ‘The King Rides’ or something like that, last week. Have discovered I like P.E. Wadehouse better than Benchley as a steady diet. Got home about 6 p.m. The family was expecting me on the train – Fooled ’em!
