A day of constant sunshine but with a most bitter dry N. wind. There had been some rain during the night. I was surprised to find a little heap of yesterday week’s snow at the back of the Toll. I had a very small town list + did them walking including Hospital (where I dressed Rob. Beattie’s neck1), Dunsdale, Forest Road, Kirkwynd + Backrow. Was not out after 2. Bella2 was out + Nancy was doing all the work.
