Another glorious day + with a cooling N.W. breeze. Lovely calm moonlight night. Had only a few town cases + finished them in time for morning service. Had to go down to Buccleuch Road after to see a child of Lang. Wrote Jean [Muir], David + Frank Muir. Had high tea at Wellwood + got a message to see the baby at Scott’s, Sunderland Hall. It is only 8 months + is walking. The idiots had actually given it corned beef to eat which of course gave it colic. Jack [Roberts] kindly ran me down in his motor.
