A touch of frost made the roads a little better but in the town the thaw continued. There was a pretty sharp east wind. Lots of accounts coming in. I saw a few town cases + walked out to Smedheugh to see the baby, taking Keltie [dog]. It was rather heavy walk going up. David did a message to the cook at Yarrow Manse who had cut her finger + another to see a maid at Carterhaugh. Helen went to David’s lecture.
