Another wild day but wind + rain less, also milder + snow all off Peat Law &c. Got my Burberrys back from Turnbull. Saw eleven town cases walking. Geo. Niven1 very difficult to manage. Saw him 3rd + had to Chloroform him to give him a hypo. Beautiful moonlight night. Helen [Muir] busy cleaning the drawing room.
1 George Niven was at 8 Mavis Bank, Selkirk, in one of Gibson & Lumgair’s properties
