At the House saw Barbara Henderson + D. [Dr David Graham, co-partner] curetted. Alice Smith helped. Anniversary services. Mr Black, Broughton Place, officiated1. I went to late morning + evening services. In the afternoon motored to Fauldshope + took Frank [Muir?]. We went to Hartwoodmyres + up to the Woll March + returned through Bowhill. I was knocked up at 4 a.m. for a Mr Murray, a visitor at the Temp. [Temperance] Hotel, from Edinburgh who came to the Surgery with retention. Saw a few town cases. Very cold.
