I saw eleven town cases walking + was not out of the house after 1 o’clock. Wrote Jean and Dora [Muir]. Rob. Marshall came in with a bruised shoulder, having fallen [illegible] down the Green. A lad Gardener was sent into Hospital by Menzies + bolted when Matron was at supper. Spent a long time weeding out index cards of Panel patients who had left or died + arranging alphabetically new ones I had got.
