A very perfect day with the usual E. wind much modified. Some dust going. Nearly cloudless sky all day.
Mrs I saw Mrs Henderson1 at 9.45 last night when she was still only partially dilated. Came home + lay down on sofa. They came for me about 11.30 but I did not hurry + when another massage came I went to find the child born at 12.10. Pretty good work for [a] 40 year old Primip! Today I saw 18 town cases: cycled to Dunsdale, Bogle House + Beechbank Road + then to Ettrick Road, Yarrow Road, Ettrickhaugh Road, Beechwood + Oakwood. Had consults from 6.15 till nearly 8.
