A little sunshine in morning + thus a damp rather cold day. I had not much to do walking in the town. Called at Wellwood + saw Nancy who returned yesterday from London1 and Jock who came today in the glory of his first suit with trousers2. Mr Ross called3. David [Graham] was at Thirladean + Weatherhouse. Wrote Dr Yellowlees + Guy3.
