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

A keen NW wind dried the roads wonderfully though there had been a slight snow shower between 7 + 8. I walked to Tower Street, Market Place, West Port, Pinegrove, Dunsdale Cottages, Sloethornbank, Curror Street, Shawpark + Knowepark [?] or Thornepark [?] + later to Castle Street, Rosebank + the Floors. After dinner had to see Mrs Orr, Dovecot. D [Dr David Graham] was at Yair Bridge + then at Broadmeadows + Lewenshope. H + Nancy1 went to the Picture House.
