Brilliant morning: a little hoar frost, but cold + dull after. Cycled to Mills + Sunderland Hall stables returning via Linglie. Later had to go down to Bridgelands to see old Jas. Hardie. Did 101/2 miles + feel pretty stiff.
Got stand for B.S.A. David was at Shaws Farm + in the evening had to go to Gilmanscleuch + when he got back from there to Sunderland Hall stables as old Gen [General ?] McGill had Epistaxis1 . Jean came at 7.30. I am not at all pleased with her engagement to Pike. He is only a private + seems to have no prospects2.
