It was such a perfect day that the disappointment over yesterday morning’s ride was all the greater. It would have been impossible to improve on today. No dust, constant sunshine, no wind + yet moderate heat. I cycled to Jenkins1, Philiphaugh Manse, Bridgelands (Charlotte) + Yair. The Wellwooders went for a picnic at Henderland. Helen went in the Swift + took Vera Brown. I had a quiet afternoon + shot 3 sparrows. Dined at Elmbank [?] most [illegible] + David + Norah [Graham] there. The lower pane of the bathroom window was smashed by the blind getting outside + 2 panes of the harness room window was broken by the Boy Scouts.
1 The Reverend John Jenkins was at Philiphaugh Congregational Manse, Russell Place, Selkirk, 1919 Valuation Roll
