Some lovely weather. Helen [Muir] left at 10 + Baptie motored her to Carlisle. He got back a little after 4. 100 miles in 6 1/4 miles including stoppage for lunch + at station. I cycled round town + then had a good spell at clerical work. David [Graham, co-partner] was at Altrieve + Bridgelands. Supped at the Firs where I met Mr Still, who lately was locum for Somerville [?]. It looks as if there was something between him + Edith1.
1 Edith Smith, daughter of Patrick Smith, advocate, and Alice Smith née Paterson; Mr Still has not been identified but it is assumed he was locum to the Reverend James Somerville, United Free Minister of Selkirk who was absent on war service for part of the First World War [see The Dollar Magazine, Vol. XIV, No. 56, December 1915]
