Had a good night after a dose of cough Mixt. + Heroin. Took breakfast in bed. Would have cycled to Faldonside but the hoar frost on the roads deterred me. Motored to Faldonside + Peelburnfoot in the afternoon. D. [Graham] was at Ettrickshaws + Bowhill. The frost had gone by night + the pavements were moist. I did not require to go back to Faldonside at night as they ‘Phoned that Phyllis1 was keeping easier.
