Another miserable day of east wind (slight) + rain. There was not a glimpse of sunshine. A large aeroplane passed over flying very low at 8 O’Clock. Probably the Handley Page from Manchester going north1. Saw D. Murray before breakfast + a few after, then motored to Ettrick Mill, Sunderland Hall stables + Bridgelands. Went to Divisional meeting at Newtown. It was held in the Baillie Memorial Hall + we got no tea. I had nothing from breakfast until 7 p.m. but a bite of cheese. Miss Williamson illegible words] had tea with H + D. Got payment for attending at Melrose last year.
1 Presumably either a Handley Page O/400 twin engine or a V/1500 four engine bomber, both of which during 1919 were being repurposed for commercial flight
