A little hoar frost this morning, colder, fine on the whole: hail shower in afternoon. Cycled to Mauldsheugh. Saw one or two in Heatherlie including Dav Lumgair: first time I have been in Priory since Lumgair died 8 years ago. Went on to Weatherhouse, Oakwood, Thirladean & Beechwood. Got letter from Dr Yellowlees announcing that he has stopped visiting Miss Coalville. Looked in at Mauldsheugh again + met Major McDonald [?]. Worked at [illegible] Sold. + Temp Recd [?] accounts. Fowler [?] + Johnstone came + saw about the piece of wall [illegible] the Bowling Green1. Jack + I went to meeting for men [?] in Victoria Hall. Poor turnout addressed by McDonald, Gala.
