A very rough day with torrential rain in the morning and a N.W. gale at night. Ettrick in top flood. Got out pretty sharp + saw town cases + then motored to Dunsdale, Yair, Bogle House (where I failed to pass the stomach tube of Peter Peden1) + Bowhill. Saw one or two more after lunch in town. Wrote some letters to Jean, Dora, Guy2 + Agnes Durnford. Went back to Yair at night. Dubs3 pretty weak.
