It cleared up to a most lovely afternoon + evening with cloudless sky + hardly a breath of wind: at 10 there was full moon + I sat + smoked under the Rowan tree in my evening clothes + without a hat! I saw about a doz. cases + cycled down to Hospital where two fresh cases of Diph. were admitted. Dined with Mrs Scott Anderson1 to keep McCall2 company. Dav.3 was in Ed.
