Streets wet this morning but it cleared up + was a lovely afternoon. I walked down to Hospital: gave Chlor[oform] to Turnbull1 of Kirkhope at Viewfield: walked out to Buxton + at 2 motored to Thirlestane + Craighill2 taking Chrissie3 + we returned via Rankleburn and Borthwickbrae. The atmosphere was absolutely clear + the hills lovely. The rain has had a wonderful effect on them already.
