The Cruise of the Dondevoy

    


[I have omitted a lengthy description of the Labour Exchange and Department of Social Security in Northampton, the result of which was sixty-five pence, which was enough to buy food for a few days. B.E.N.]

Laden down with two carrier bags of food, I walked out to the archaeological site with my letter of introduction. It turned out to be further than I thought, at least four miles, and my burden got heavier all the time. When I eventually got there, the man in charge was out, but if I was to turn up tomorrow morning...

Despite the difficulties, the possibility of a job is now a probability, and having driven me back to Billing in a Land Rover, my future workmates will also pick me up tomorrow morning. So the future looks bright at last.
