Snowing heavily but calmly this morning. It cleared by 10 + the streets were very slushy. No frost but poor thaw. Gave Chlor[oform] for D [Dr David Graham] to operate on Agnes Thornton for appendicitis + Mitchell, Blacksmith for a scrotal abscess. Walked round by Dunsdale + Hospital &c. Went to evening service. Supped Wellwood. D [Dr David Graham] was at Barrie, Newarkburn + Goodfellow [?], Broadmeadows.
