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

Rather sharper but quite fresh. Dav [Dr David Graham] had a long round to Synton Mill, Ashkirk Manse, Rinkhope, Ettrick Shaws, Altrieve, Mount Benger, Mount Benger Hope and Deuchar Mill which took him from 10 till after 4 + then he went to Shawmount. I saw some town cases + cycled to Yair. It threatened rain + I rode in my cape but it kept quite fair. Jean came at 7.30 looking very well1.
