A wet disagreeable day. Mrs Mackintosh took her sister Mrs Simpson1, Helen2 + Mitchell3 in a motor car to the meet at Ashkirk. I went down to Faldonside in the morning + David went at night + injected a vaccine (stock) into the spinal cavity. I saw about a doz. town cases. Feeling rather dyspeptic.
