Snow lying this morning + a little fell while I was dressing. It soon disappeared however + there was some sunshine but the S.W. [wind] was very cold + the barometer very low. I motored to Ladylands + Linglie Cottages + met D. [David Graham] at Dickson’s, Victoria Crescent where he removed a urethral caruncle. I spent the rest of the day working up my address for the Guild meeting tomorrow night. Bella1 in bed with asthma. H [Helen Muir] went to evening service + we supped at Wellwood2.
