Streets wet this morning but it turned out a fine day. I feel very miserable with the Coryza + sneezed + coughed continuously. Saw some 6 or 7 cases and walked to Linglie Mill. Was in the house all day after. Mrs Mack with “supplies” including a pint of whisky: a pot of cream : some sponge cake + eggs.1 I lunched off porridge. It was very clear calm + frosty looking at night.
