Left by the 8.13 for Glasgow to attend a conference of county delegates re future status of Scottish Red Cross. Got to Glasgow at 11.15. Called at Duncan Campbell + ordered [a] Scribbling Diary. Saw a P.O. clerk + verified John G Smith[‘s] address. Located the Hall 218 St Vincent Street where the meeting was to be held + then walked part of the way + trained the rest to 5 Rankin Gardens where I saw them all but Nancy + had my lunch. [Illegible] (Mrs Laurence Neil) is staying in Glasgow for her confinement. Took car back to meeting at 2.30 + caught the 4.55 arriving in Edinburgh at 6. I had asked Jean + Dora to meet me but neither of them turned up. I dined at the N.B. [North British] Hotel , went to the Picture House + came out with the last train.
