A really fine day at last. There was bright sunshine from early morning till 6 O’clock. There was a sharp hoar frost = 70 at Elmpark. Slight N.E. to E. wind. Colder in afternoon. Cycled down Forest Road to Beechwood: back by Backrow to Hill Street + Rosemount + then to Harvey, Yair Cribs1 returning via Lindean + Curror Street = 15.2. Made out some accounts finishing [the letter] E. Sent card to Mrs Chas. McGilchrist2.
1 Perhaps John Harvey, shepherd, at Hen Row, Yairbridge, Caddonfoot, 1920 Valuation Roll; it is not immediately clear why Cribs, though it is below Cribs Hill
2 Presumably Jessie Catherine Turnbull, widow of Charles Robert Bryden McGilchrist, (about 1853-1920), shipping merchant – see diary entry for 7 April 1920
