Most complete change from almost summer to mid winter! Everything smothered in snow + a continuous (but calm) fall till 3 p.m. There must be 6-8 inches. It was soft however + the streets got very slushy. I saw 7 cases walking + finished by 12. Got all January [accounts] posted. Before dinner walked town to see John Mitchell, Mavisbank, whom I had forgotten. Dubs’ funeral was today. There was to be a service at 10.15 before they started for Glasgow but I didn’t go.
1 Frank Albert or F A Dubs (1860-1920), engineer and locomotive builder, had died 16 February 1920 at Yair and was buried at the Glasgow Necropolis, Wishart Street, Glasgow
