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

Fog has lifted today + although not sunny there were glimpses of the blue. There was little to do + no County work. Being Norah’s birthday Dav. [Dr Graham] wanted to be at home1 + I did most of what little town work there was + Briarbank 10 cases in all. Went to evening service. Jack + Nancy at supper2.
