Fine day with strong S.W. to N.W. wind. Made 10 town calls + then to Bridgelands + Yair + some more town calls returning. Got home about 2.30 to find message to Gilmanscleuch to see Linton’s baby. Motored up. Mrs Johnstone was in charge. Went on to Newburgh Cottages (Miss Mc?), Ettrick School, back to Ettrick Shaws (to find Miss A had left for Harrogate), General’s Bridge + Bella Henderson. I had finally got in at 7.30 when a message came to Jack Brown, Glebe Terrace. McCall called about a sting in [illegible]’s ear.
