Complete + dismal change of weather. Heavy rain + fog obliterated all the scenes of last night. Left Woodbourne1 after a very pleasant visit. Got the 11.30 to Central + the 1 from Queen Street, reaching Ed. at 2.40. Went to Forsyth’s + got fitted2. Had lunch at the Picture House + went to the pictures but the place was crammed + a crowd standing. Got a seat for a short time + came out by the 4.20. Baptie3 met me. Found Helen4 well + Peter Allen5 with her. Had a lot of people at consultation hour. Met Jean6 at the station as she was going back to town. Baptie motored in + brought her here on Monday.
