Frost gone: pavements damp as if from slight showers but it kept fair all day. Dull sunless calm + much milder. I did a town list of 16 besides Hospital. It was 4.15 before I sat down to read up about the B.M.A. for which I have been asked to reply at the dinner on Wednesday1. Helen2 went to Ed. with Mrs Mack3. I sent Baptie4 to bed as he was feeling seedy with vomiting + diarrhoea.
