Dull morning but after 12 a most glorious day, calm, bright + the verdure everywhere most [text deleted] lovely [?]. I cycled to W Park, Buccleuch Road1 + Hospital + in the afternoon had to go twice to the Henhouse to see Johnny Laidlaw2 who, I thought, had some peritonitis. I asked Dav.3 to see him at night but he didn’t think there was anything serious. I finished Hospital Report. Helen4 cycled with Peter5 to Abbotsford.
