I suffered at night + all day with the worst attack of Dyspepsia I ever had. It made me quite miserable all day + I took very little food. Walked to Byethorn + Goslaw Green + motored to Faldonside + Shielshaugh. Phyllis Dees1 pretty well + [I] didn’t go down at night. Was in house all afternoon + evening. It was a fine morning. Hounds at Haining. Had a bit [?] of fish + a glass of sherry for dinner in Smoke room. Wire from D. [David Graham] to say he would be done on Monday morning2. Ettrick in flood.
