4th July 1952
Last night’s celebrations were a delight - to see everyone arrive dressed with such extravagance and style was glorious. Silvester arriving early as usual in a grand lilac shirt, with Raymond and Quentin looking dapper in Navy and Blue. Dennis and Cody rolled in laughing excessively whilst Cassius’ brightly coloured garment was the talk of the night.
We celebrated the arrival of my new friends Wilbur and Abott, who were both especially well dressed in their multi coloured glad rags, and my new best friend Donald a little more understated yet very elegant. It turned out two of the newcomers were cousins of my old friend Zanetti, and they passed a very pleasant evening exchanging news and gossip from home. I am sure I shall be seeing much more of them about the town in the coming months.
A truly magnificent gathering.
