The clouds lifted a bit + there was some sunshine at least up till 3, there was a sharp W. wind + the roads, horribly sticky, got a little drier. I had a nasty dull pain in my left hip joint which made walking painful but I was all right cycling which I did, first to Ettrickhaugh, ?, Beechwood + Bowhill, + then to Longmoss + back by Lindean to Bridgelands, I’m all 15.1 [miles]. Helen [Muir] had Miss Brunton to tea. I applied for £200 of 10% Cumulative Preferred Ordinary Stock of the P.C.J.
