1940 Mon 12:30 - I'm "developing" into a photographer. Ran stuff with Mick today on portraits. To be done over. Saw Peggy for a few minutes. Worked tonight.
1941 Wed 8:45 Maybe I need a shot in the arm... seems so hard to get anything accomplished. Corrected papers downstairs... talked w/ Mrs R. Doctor ordered our usual nightcap.
1942 12:00 All Saints for dinner. Roda Meyer is a nice Dutch gal. Very ambitious, and Quaker, too. Like Mike in some respects. Coffee in the drawing Room.
1943 FRI 4:00 A VERY LARGE EVENING indeed... INCLUDED THE RAUCOUS Rockefeller WHERE WE SANG LOUDLY AND LONG... THEN TO THE BARN DOWN IN GREENWICH VILLAGE... WHICH IS A MARVELOUS PLACE... I ONLY GOT TO DANCE ONCE, THOUGH... THEN WITH BOB (THEY PLAYED M SWEET EMB. YOU I PRETENDED I WAS DANCING W. Leonard) THEN, AS WE WERE LEAVING MY DATE HAD A RUN-IN WITH A COAST GUARD Sailor... QUITE EXCITING. WE WENT WITH PEG FOR HER LESSON THIS AFT. I FELT LIKE I WAS BEING CONVOYED W/ 3 ENSIGNS TOWING ME AROUND.
