Raining this forenoon from N.E, faired in afternoon + wind W.N.W. Ran down in motor to Mauldsheugh + found out what was to be done, as D. [David Graham] wanted to go to Edinburgh. Came back + saw some town cases on my way to Mrs Wood1, Sunderland Hall Lodge. Then I went to Colin’s Bridge, Kirkhope Cottages, Shankend + Crook Cottage. Jas. Johnstone’s wife2 has developed Phthisis. Took tea for Baptie3 + self which we had at the 20th milestone. Got back at 4.30 + saw some more town cases. Had consultation till 7.15 + wrote Nancy4. Was disappointed to find the promise of fruit on plum tree + apples was gone but the strawberries are doing well.
