It was a fine morning + I thought of doing Bengerburnhope1 + then going on for a run either to Peebles + Eddleston onto Innerleithen + Gala Water but a message came for Mrs Maycock2, Faldonside which made it too late + it was just as well as the weather broke + it was very wet all afternoon. David3 came up in afternoon + we arranged our separate lists of patients + visits, a very desired change in my opinion.
