Motored to Yair. It was a damp cold day. Tweed very full. Saw a few town cases after + sat at accounts all afternoon. David got message to And. [Andrew] Linton1, Gilmanscleuch + Oakwoodmill which he did. Mrs Mackintosh came up at night about a form she had got about Dora [Muir] who had given her as a reference for Registering as a nurse. She gave Helen + me a cut of salmon: [illegible] of chocolate, a cream cheese + 2 books! Sent Jean [Muir] some spring flowers + among them snow drops.
1 The editor was not confident of this reading but corroboration came via reference to several visits (2 October and 7 December 1918 and 28 February 1919) Dr Muir made to Andrew Linton and his family at Gilmanscleuch
