Saw first Hawthorn near Boleside [?] on 25th
Another magnificent day: calm warm + sunny. S.E. + E. it was almost too hot sometimes. Cycled round town + saw a doz. [patients]. Finished soon after 12. Got some more pictures out of lumber room for Viewfield. Did some book work: at 6.30 got message to see a child Jeffrey, Yair. Cycled over. Delicious evening. Took 4 knickers1 to Walt Dobson to get hip pockets [and] ordered 2 pairs of shoes at Dickson’s.
1 The Editor assumes this refers to cycling knickers, presumably shorter plus-two style knickerbockers rather than plus-four style breeches
