Cold N.W. to N. wind but it was sunny + dry all day till about 4 when there was a very severe blast of heavy rain + sleet. I cycled to Rockville Terrace, Curror Street, Bannerfield, Heatherliebank. Did some book work in afternoon. David [Graham] came up + we arranged about Income Tax, nurse McGilligan at Rockville knows Dora. They were at Miss Proudfoot’s home together. She called this afternoon. Bella [Paulin] + Dora [Muir] both better.
