As cold as ever but not as much wind + it was therefore bearable. There was a little snow lying in the angle of the hay shed roof this morning. During the day there were a few flakes of snow. I saw some town cases walking + then cycled to Lower + Upper Faldonside + Lindean School + after tea, which I didn’t get till 3.15, I cycled to Whitmuir to see Mrs Neil1 + also took Comm[union] cards to the Halls2 + Harveys3 + voting papers for Alder4. David5 came out tonight till tomorrow.
