Some snow lying this morning but it was rather a nice sunny day though cold. S.W. [wind]. When I looked out at 10 p.m. however there was a thick covering of snow. David left early + motored to Edinburgh meaning to go to the Glasgow Motor Show1. He won’t be back till Monday. I motored to Bowhill + Sunderland Hall + saw 9 town cases. Was called out before dinner to Mrs D Thomas, Goslaw Green. Nancy + H [Helen] had tea with Bell Harkness2.
1 Presumably the motor show put on at the Kelvin Hall in January 1920 by the Scottish Motor Traders Association
2 The Editor assumes this is Isabella Harkness (1859-1929); the friendship if that is what it is, may stem from support given to Mrs Harkness when her daughter died in awful circumstances in 1915 – there are references to Helen (or Helen and Nancy or Barbara) visiting Bell Harkness on dates in 1916, 1917 and 1918
