Notes, topics or text 

"Judith was here on Saturday for the share out of Lucy Donnelly's clothes, sent to me by Edith Finch, and she had just been to lunch with 'Peter', Bertie's wife, after not having seen her for years. After lunch, a reporter rang her up asking for news of Bertie, who was reported drowned in that terrible Norwegian plane crash, and the poor woman was nearly distracted.

"However, reassuring news soon arrived that he had escaped with a short but icy ducking, tho' 19 of his companions were killed. I am thankful he was saved, as I still love him, and I think his life still has a value for the world, and I hope for himself".

Soon she is to broadcast on "In My Experience", life over 80.
