Lovely sunny day. Some frost last night. This is the 3rd consecutive day I have had no country work. Mrs Metcalf, Castle Street, Haining Lodge, died from malignant disease of pancreas & stomach*. Saw Archie Galloway 3am. I fear he is dying. Cycled to Bowhill & went over the House with Mrs [Ordish] to report on the available accommodation for convalescent officers. Went to War Prayer meeting & did the reading from Isaiah 63 & Rev 7. Was called out at 4pm to see And[rew?] Wright’s boy.
* Margaret Metcalfe, aged 75, died 9.20 on 30 September.
