A very nice sunny day with cool N to NE breeze. David quite forgot an appointment to curette Mrs Taylor, Ettrickhaugh Road in the morning so I met him there at 2. In the forenoon I cycled to [?] Street, Bridgehaugh Mill, Ashybank &c. Drew £150 from the firm for myself. Stamped Baptie’s + Bella’s insurance cards1. Spent the afternoon putting my clothes etc together for my holiday. I am taking a box of Helen’s + my larger kit bag.
1 Thomas Baptie (1860-1929), Dr Muir’s driver and Isabella ‘Bella’ Paulin (b.1873), the Muir family housekeeper
