Occupation somewhat as usual. But finding myself likely to be affected with another abscess like that in March last and coming from the same tooth I gathered courage and went down to the dentists (Gunnell) to see if he would be more successful than the other man. As it had been broken below the gum, there was some doubt. But he performed the operation easily and relieved me from a trouble of very long standing. I hope the abscess will now disperse. In the evening a ride with John.
