There had evidently been a heavy shower during the night + the dust was quite laid. There was less wind, though still E + it was appreciably warmer. It was a lovely evening, quite calm + a cloudless sky. I felt distinctly tired + was glad to use the car to Heathpark &c, Newark Mill + Faldonside. Got back just as the church was coming out. Had a quiet afternoon + sat a while in the garden. Had to go down to Glebe Terrace to see Mrs J Hogg. Got all May [accounts] posted. H., D.1 + I supped at Wellwood. Jack, Nancy + Minnie Baillie had been to Mauricewood to see Tom McGregor2. Jack3 wants to go to Edinburgh to stop Jean’s marriage4. I told him I might as well attempt to stop Niagara!
