Frost gone + thaw set in but swiftly with rise of temperature. No wind at all: sunless. D [Dr David Graham] + I saw Agnes Thomson, Hill Street, + decided she should be operated on for appendicitis. Message to Bob Currie1. Walked via Bridge Street to Yair + Fairnilee Cottages returning via Hospital. Got back a little after 3. Roads getting soft but still fair going. Had Kelty with me.
1 Robert Currie (about 1857-1923), woollen hosiery manufacturer, lived at Byethorn, Selkirk [where the Selkirk High School is today], though he died at Rockville on the opposite side of Hillside and a little further out of Selkirk
