Full Moon, 10.46 p.m.
Wrote to Susan. Went home to Mummie. Had some “Radio Malt”*. Jill Cothay came up to the senior school. I wrote to Anne Bourne & Lavender as well.
*According to Wikipedia: Radio Malt was an early to mid-20th century brand of malt extract preparation that followed the Minadex trend. Produced by British Drug Houses, it contained vitamin A, aneurine hydrochloride, riboflavin, and calciferol. The contents were sickly sweet, with a consistency between molasses and treacle.
