A much warmer day though the weather cock still points NE. In the afternoon it was almost sultry. My thermo[meter] stood at 56o + after opening the windows a short time it rose to 58o. Very little doing except that Dav. [Dr David Graham] was at Kirkhope + Lilliesleaf. I paid feu duty &c + cycled to Gibson + Lumgair, Riverside + Buccleuch Road, Curror Street, Linglie Cottages, Sunderland Hall stables + Bridgelands. Walked up the path opposite Lindean Mill + smoked. Saw a swallow at Sunderland[?]. Paid Linton for the extra part of the wall £14 10 0. My share of the rest is £13 10 0 as that with £2 10 0 from the Bowling Club it will cost me £25 10 0. Jenny Smith + Nurse Williamson at tea: Boylan called.
