Saw a few town cases + cycled down to Faldonside getting back in time to meet Charlie Boucher1 + his wife (Martha2) at the 12 train + ran them up to Newark + back by Colin’s Bridge. After lunch Charlie + I walked to the Gala Rigg + they left at 6. Martha is a very bright
little Colleen. Charlie I would hardly have known. It was a nice day though rather hazy. Tom + I dined at Whitmuirhall. It was a very clear cold night.
