Thursday morning [1 August 1946]

Belov Boo
I may with luck hear from you tomorrow.
Last night was beautiful. The L.S.1 was so like R - The string passages expressive as no other ever makes them. I sat with a score & our wireless excelled itself - and when 10 o'c came there was R! quite himself. There was a handsome applause for him - 5 times - All the Boult family were there - & of course Ursula in faithful attendance who saw him off from Vic2 with Peter Montgomery - just home from India (he was trained by Adam?)3
This morning R is making hay. The sun shines & he is going to have tea with Mrs Hornstein wh will be just the right touch after his strenuous evening.
