Nice day: mostly fair but a slight shower in afternoon. Felt much better today. Acting on David’s1 suggestion got Robert Beattie2 into Viewfield. He was thoroughly cleaned + at night his temp. was normal! I motored Turnbull, Yair3 and returned by Bridgelands + Hospital4. Was not at church. Toiled at record + Summary cards + got the whole business finished5. I shall not get into such another muddle.
