Frosty. Sharp day. Keen N.W. wind. Roads hard today with ice in places but very good for cycling. Baptie1 better + working. Made 18 town calls walking + cycling + cycled to Ovenscloss + Yair. Dubs not so well. Came back via Rink. After tea got back [?] out + called for Miss Dunn. Got Share certificates from Prov. Cinem. Theatres2 for £300 Pref. + £100 Ordinary shares. Letter from May in which she says that Frank Muir has had his goitre removed.
