14th - to Alices to tea. Rotten time. Norman there and A lionised him. Felt like going away altogether and the silly ass Prudhoe a bigger fool than ever. Think I will give concerts up after Bedale. However, get Farnells so far back. NP had to go in to write a letter (?). Alice anc I had a confidential chat coming back as Kate and Elsie stuck together. The air cleared a bit and arranged for a walk tomorrow night to talk over things. Very unsettling. Was out til 4 o clock this morning as the Ice Co machinery was broken down. Got into a row at home for Alice not reciting on Wednesday.
