Lovely dull morning, mists floating over the city. Spent day in the library. Felt ill. Afternoon went over to Prestonfield. Had tea and supper, long talk with Yankowski; Janet dressed in lovely scarlet dress. Grouse for supper, and wonderful pink cream pudding. Heavy rain began. Thought of
so far away. Much talk tonight about Portal
Houses, Mrs Paterson and Miss Millers.
