A dull damp morning followed by a wet day till 2 when it faired but rained again later. Wind slight S.W. Jack + Nancy [various words deleted] to Troon to join Frank Muir. I once thought of going with them but Dav. [Dr David Graham, co-partner] had fixed an operation for Sunday. I made 5 town calls + was in the house for the rest of the day. Fixed up the books for September + started making out the 20 annual Hospital report. Got P.C. [post card] from Helen [Muir] to say she will be home on the 10th which is the day Tom Alexander comes.
