There wasn’t a speck of cloud the whole day + the wind (E) was slight. The world was looking its very best. Unfortunately I was not + a very severe Coryza developed. I felt so seedy that I went to bed in the afternoon. In the morning I cycled to Fairnilee E Lodge + Faldonside taking the “Vibrator” to Cath. Duff1. I stuck up a notice on the Surgery door that I wouldn’t see anyone.
1 Dr Muir had previously been treating Cath. Duff with Heroin, see diary entry for 7 June 1920
