Brilliant morning + fine up till 2 or 3 when it gradually thickened + began to rain between 6 + 7. I saw a few town cases + started at 1 cycling to Whitmuirhall where I delivered a Communion card to Hall. Went on to Lilliesleaf. Saw only Mrs Hume. Then via Harelaw to view Catshawhill1 where I took tea under lea of a hedge. It was getting hazy then but I turned back to Hassendean + round by Hassendeanbank + Teviotbank2 (a road I had never gone before) to Hassendean + then by Appletree Hall. I got back before the rain came on. Jean [Muir] came at 7.24.
