Some frost + a clearer atmosphere: roads harder. Some sunshine N.E. [wind]. Made 4 town calls. + after reading up an accumulation of circulars: appeals, reports + correspondence began to make out last quarter’s accounts. I was not disturbed at all + got well into ‘C’. Saw John Gray1, Mavisbank a second time before dinner. He has had no fits since yesterday afternoon. Temp. at night 101.2. There was a Panel Commttee meeting but I sent an apology.
