Baptie + I went up to Harehead Young Wood to select some sticks for the fruit enclosure.
Strong gale from W. raged all night. Saw 7 town cases walking + motored to Goslaw Green, Rectory, Raeburn Meadow, Sunderland Hall Stables, Yair + Bridge Street. At Heather Mill got messages to Cockburn, Middlehead + Elliot, Ladylands. Jack got a ‘phone from Nancy that Stewart was ill + he motored to Moffat taking David with him. I had a crowd of 22 or 23 people in at night. Felt a coryza coming on. Not much rain. [River] Tweed very swollen, more so than Ettrick [Water]. Snow quite gone from Peel Law + Foulshiels. I expected Dora [Muir] to come today but she wired that she had gone to Hamilton.
