Another rapid + complete change to fresh weather. It blew moderately from W.S.W. + the snow disappeared rapidly but not entirely. David rang up at 4 a.m. about a case of eclampsia at Fauldshope. He got the patient (a girl of 18) down to Mauldsheugh as there was a possibility of Caesarean section which Scott [illegible] would have done: but he managed to [illegible] + deliver with forceps [?]. This took till after 7. Then at 10 D. operated on [illegible] Finney for femoral Hernia + Scott [illegible] on Geo. Riddell, Lilliesleaf for enlarged prostate. This took till 1. Then I motored to Bowhill. In the morning I saw cases at Dunsdale Cottages, Heatherliebank, Ettrick Road + Cannon Street. Went to evening service. Jack + Nancy at supper.
