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

Freezing again making the roads very icy. Had some indigestion last night. An easy day. Message to see a maid at Yair which D [Dr David Graham] did on his way to Newtown (Pension Board) via Boleside. I was at Byethorn, M. Park, Forest Lodge (the old F. C. Manse) seeing Martin, Forest Mill + Dunsdale. Saw Baptie who is much better. Took him some more books. Helen [Muir] at Jedburgh at the dressmaker. Nancy [Roberts née Muir] with her. Got a lot done at books [accounts] &c. Wrote report for the L.G.B. (to whom McIntyre has complained) as the circumstances in which I placed the lad Irvine from Clarklands in the female ward. Wrote Dora [Muir] on her birthday.
