Cold, drizzling day S.W. [wind]. There was a little snow visible at Falahill yesterday + on the hill tops, but there was none to be seen here today. Motored to Oakwood + Fauldshope + saw some town cases walking in the afternoon. Ralph Smith1 called in the at 4.30 + I examined him for the Scottish Prov.2
