Rather colder + at night there was a slight snow shower. Gave Violet Hannay1, Buccleuch Road, chlor[oform] for curettage + then motored to Sunderland Hall. Mrs P [Plummer] not any better and I went down again at night. Went to evening service. Choir sang some selections from [The] Messiah. Addressed Xmas cards to post tomorrow.
