Dull fresh day: raining at night. Had to go down early to Sunderland Hall. Then I walked out to So[uth] Common with Nancy, Barbara, Stewart, Louise + Tim1 (on Don) to watch the hounds, the meet being at Haining: we saw very little of them as they only pottered about the woods. I came back before 2. It seems they had a good run after, from W Riddell2. Saw some town cases in afternoon. Got a message to Mrs Lyall3, Lilliesleaf which David did.
