Mild + raining. River big. Was not out of town. Walked to Goslaw Green, Rectory, Shawpark, Mavisbank, Heathview, Castle Street, Bank, Kilncroft + Bridge Street. David [Graham] came in when I was at tea. Mr Ross1 paid his pastoral visit at night. Finished ‘Christopher & Columbus’2 which Mrs Mackintosh gave me in June. Helen + Nancy had tea with Lydia.
