At 5 had to go to Beechwood to see one of the nurses + it was raining heavily. I cycled. There at 8.15 I got a message for Mrs Archibald Johnston1 + walked down. Agnes Durnford + her baby2 arrived at Elmpark. Jack3 motored to Easter Lilliesleaf for eggs + they went on to Hawick + met Barbara4 who came home for Easter.
