Several very severe snow blizzards in afternoon. Streets very slushy but at night snow lying thickly. Message to see Agnes Durnford. She looks very thin + I am a very little suspicious about her right lung. I saw town cases walking. David was at Old Mill Farm, Midgelands + Sunderland Hall at night he operated on Jas. Beattie, Ettrickhaugh Road for appendicitis. I did not get home till 10.30. Major Johnstone at Mauldsheugh.
