[20 July 1951] †
Things going better, all lumbago gone practically, and now preparing for the opening lectures of the special course which begins on Monday morning. May have to give an interview to the Whig Standard on new writers tomorrow but am trying to avoid it. Looking forward to next Friday as usual.
Will you buy a large Nescafé for me and a large (or two small) box of Dobie's smoking tobacco. I am out of both and can't get them here. I shall bring them back on Sunday.
