A sunless day, except for a little while in the evening. Town list getting much smaller. Was knocked up at 4.30 to see David Murray at Cleghorn [?], Backrow. He had an attack of sickness and vertigo. Saw him in the forenoon + at night + Dav [Dr David Graham] saw him in the afternoon. Got a lot of accounts addressed, D helped me. Posted all the County ones. Dav was at Yarrowford, Newark School1 + Oakwood Mill. Helen [Muir] + Barbara [Roberts] cycled to Hawkshaw for tea + went with all the Wellwooders2 to a concert in the Picture House for the cricket club.
