Jack better today. Called for him in the morning + saw Munro with whom I had a nice crack last night. Motored to Faldonside (Dawn1) + Sunderland Hall. Dav. came up in afternoon + helped me to address the form accounts + I got them all finished + arrayed for delivery. D. was at Newarkburn + Newark Mill + then at night had to go to Shaws + finally to a confinement at Dryhope2. It was a day of constant drizzle.
1 Assume Dawn Gordon Belle Brack Boyd Wilson, later Boyd Wilson Milne (1894-1980)
2 Assuming this was Dryhope, Yarrow then the only obvious birth would be that of George William Ballantyne Steele of Dryhope Hope born 18 January 1920 which, though it appears too early to be that referred to, is Entry No. 1 in the Yarrow District Births for 1920
