A dull day but calm + quite pleasant. Was twice at Faldonside and thought Miss D.1 rather better. Kept on the dry pad, the swelling being less. Helen2 had written to say she would be at Gala at 6.16 + I planned motoring to Faldonside + sending the car to meet her but she unexpectedly arrived at 4 having caught the 1.13 at Carlisle. She was looking very well + sun burned.
