Linton has begun to rebuild wall at front garden

Wintery [?] weather continues. More snow lying this morning + a heavy shower while we were at breakfast. It was a hard frost all day but with some sunshine. Now + then a few isolated flakes of snow floated down. Was I was not out of town. David [Graham] over at Sunderland Hall + Waverley Hydro. Helen [Muir – see 23 March] better + up. Had another letter from Caton re [Dr] Pilot giving a very unsatisfactory account of him.
