Magnificent day: warm + sunny + clear. S.W. wind most pleasant. It was a joy to be out among the greenery + lavish blossoming. I saw a few town cases + did the anaesthesia at Viewfield for a case of webbed [?] fingers + 2 cases of tonsils + adenoids. After lunch motored with Dora1 to Philiphaugh Saw Mill, Howden Moat2 + Henhouse. We walked through the wood to Howden Hill + pulled a lot of crab apple blossom.

2 The Editor is reasonably confident that this is the property at Motte which is more closely associated with Brownmuir and is identified as Moat (occupier William Arnot, shepherd) in the 1886 Valuation Roll [for more detail see Dr Muir’s diary entry for 30 May 1922]
