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

Feeling the effects of a week’s sedentary work + went out a little. Walked over to the Firs + then to the Hospital etc. Intended walking to Faldonside but just at 12 when I was starting there was a heavy shower of rain + snow but I really might have gone in it. Kept quite fair after. There was very little work to do. D. [Dr David Graham] had a lot of men to demobilise yesterday + today.
