August 7 1939

Monday 7th August

Up latish, messed about & after lunch got ready to go to town. All of us set out – Monie, Aunt Trix, Bibi, Peg, Aunt Moo, Aunt Ettie, Mum & I.

Downtown miles in awful stuffy subway, verified our tickets & got sailing permits.

Left Aunt Trix, Mona, Bibi & Peg to mess about & the rest of us went up town. Aunt Ettie got us lost a bit, but we at last got to the shops. I bought presents – Aunt Moo gave me some cute pyjama shorts & I got myself an amusing hat – magenta velvet!

On & met the others with Margs, at the Taft Hotel, had dinner & went on to Radio City to the Show. The biggest theatre in the world- very effective like the inside of a zepplin. Saw Carole Lombard, Cary Grant & Kay Francis in ‘In Name Only’- quite good. I cried! Then a sort of ballet & music hall show- very good. Saw the lights of Broadway, had a drink & home. Terrible hot.
