3 February 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Breakfasted by daylight at 8. Rather a clearer day with a little sunshine. Gentle thaw but signs of frost at night. We arranged that D. [Dr David Graham] was to do the town while I went to [?] Beechwood, Yarrowford, Yarrow Manse + Mt Benger which I did but D. was called in the forenoon x x Midgehope Cottage (x). I got back at 2. Wrote McRobert handing over Mr Scott, Mt Benger whom I told of my intention. Dora [Muir] came back from Mauldsheugh. Letter from Jean [Muir].
