NO ENTRY AGAIN UNTIL OCTOBER 10th
Editor's Note: I looked back and I have no idea what Alice promised Allen because he did not have an entry that day. It is of significance that he made no note of it on the day but still knows exactly the day said promise was made. It seems to me that he is asking her to change something about herself--a behavior most likely because saying he "hope(s) it will last this time" suggests she so sort of effort on her part is required.
