Very little doing. David [Graham, co-partner] got a message on Friday to Hutton, Raeside but fortunately before he went discovered it was “Braeside” to see Edith’s kid1. Today I gave chlor[oform] to Mrs Menhuth [?] for removal of urethral caruncle. I then cycled to Yair where I had to open the cycling in Dub’s [?]2. I went to evening service + Dora [Muir] + I supped at Elmpark.
