8 January 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Glass rising: frost + clear sunny day when I feel it a hardship to be indoors plodding away at the books. Gave Mrs Jas. [?] Turnbull’s boy Chlor[oform] for Dav. to extract teeth. There was no Country work except Midgelands where D. [Dr David Graham] inoculated again for Typhoid1.

1 The editor has not been able to identify Midgelands in the area covered by Dr Muir’s practice
