and she told Norah she would not marry into

such a family. Leah in her opinion was no

good and a brother of George's who is a manager

of a cinematograph at Leeds and over here

at present looks like a corner boy and loafer.

Then Norah turns round and says that

there's no need to say anything when there

is such a one as your Aunt Kate. Norah

told her mother that she was only doing the

same as she had done. But your mother

said Mr Green was steady. Norah is awfully

bitter when she starts so started saying that

nobody in the family had married suitably

for your mother. Kitty flushed + Norah said

she would say what Mrs Green had expressed

and vicer-versa so things grew somewhat

hot. It ended by Mrs Green telling Norah she

would "smack her mouth" if she didn't give up

I felt inclined to crack out laughing but

kept my face quite straight and refrained

from passing any remark whatever. Today

N. has gone with George's sister to Forge

Valley. So much for breakfast.


Mrs Green Mrs B + myself then went shopping.
