Very heavy rain during the night, fine day with a shower in the evening: S.W. Extraordinary small amount of work. I made 7 visits + Dav. [Dr David Graham, co-partner] was at Lilliesleaf. I marked out a lot of paid accounts. Looked in at Wellwood. Nancy1 saw Rennie2 on her way with Jack to Troon on Monday1.
