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

Two inches of snow this morning the heaviest fall of the season up till now. It was very calm. During the day a little more fell but the frost gone + the streets got slushy. No country work. I saw 15 town cases. Jean left at 6.16 + Helen came at 7.19. Baptie finished delivering the accounts + a few were paid. Mrs Crozier, Curror Street, who was taken to the Infirmary on Sunday was operated on + died yesterday. She had a ruptured appendix + a belly full of pus.
