Dull morning. Wind round to S.W. + glass very low. It had evidently rained all night but it kept fair all day till 7 p.m. when came on again. Cycled to Ashybank + Yair + then to Buxton. David [Graham, co-partner] went to Edinburgh yesterday from Skirling + left his Singer [Coupé] there returning by last train. Baptie motored him to Hangingshaw this morn[?] + then went to his [Baptie’s] mother’s funeral taking Bob Marshall with him. I made out some more accounts. Wrote Helen [Muir] + Tom Alexander who has asked me to take him for a few days.
