“Samuel is involved in something that he can’t or won’t talk about. We have to finish reading the diaries to know what that might be but we also have to think about how we can stop whatever it waiting for us at home.”
“I know George. I feel like we’re on a very steep escalator that is headed into the unknown. We can’t go down and back to our lives before all this but going forward is just as scary. Let’s see what’s next in the diary.”

I agreed to accompany Sheila on a trip to London. We took the noon train. In London, we were staying with Sheila’s Aunt Catherine who was alone. Her husband is in the Royal Navy and her two young children had been packed off to Ireland for the duration of the war. We had to deal with the blackout nightly but luckily no bombs hit while we were visiting. Something odd did occur though. On the second day, I walked to mail a letter and I thought I saw Samuel. I called out to him but he didn’t respond. He was with another man and the two exchanged papers then parted.
