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

All signs of frost + snow gone + it was a damp calm day with dense fog in afternoon. Some rain. I was coughing a lot + with a touch of dyspepsia had rather an uncomfortable night. Saw eleven town cases + finished the accounts at 11.30 p.m. Dav. [Dr David Graham] was at Shaws + Synton Mill &c. Jean [Muir] was not out.
