Rowan tree blossom fading.

Letter from Jean at last in reply to mine of May 12th

Fair day with strongish N.W. wind. Had next to nothing to do in the forenoon. Cycled to N Port + Forest Mill. In afternoon went to meeting of Div. at Railway Hotel, Newtown. In the absence of Luke I was asked to the Chair. We considered a long remit from the Insur[ance] Committee + had tea. Fair attendance: Campbell, McMillan, Henderson, Somerville, McGregor, Herman (Eyemouth), Robertson (Chirnside), Davidson (Kelso), Menzies, Dixon, Cullen, Henderson (Coldstream), Oliver + self. Cycled down. D. [David Graham] was thrice at Ettrick Shaws + had Fraser out.
