A most extraordinary change from yesterday. The morning was dull + cloudy + a cold N.E. wind was blowing. It was impossible to seat out + there was a difference of 160 in the temp. of my room. Towards evening the sun shone + the wind fell. I did almost nothing. Cycled to Ashybank, Forest Road + Kirkwynd. Was twice at church. Wrote Jean1, John Moir2 + John McDougal3 + Dr Gray4 [?]. Paid my premium to Ed. Life + ordered some Burgundy port + Marsala from Godfree5.
