I had a terrible night coughing which made my temples ache. Kept my bed all forenoon + went to the smoke room in afternoon. David looked in. He went to Bowhill + Thirlestane. Helen + Ailie motored with Nancy1 to Tushielaw + had tea with Norman Grieve + a Mrs Rinnell. I wrote the former about an eagle he had seen + about Traquair.
