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

Sharp hoar frost: a nice calm day with some sunshine. Had 3 cases of T.S.A. at Mauldsheugh + motored to Lilliesleaf to see Phenny Woodger’s (Mrs Guthrie) boy, Purvis. Got back by 12. David motored to Midgehope. In the I walked Elmrow + Hospital. Went to evening service. [The] Rev. Geo. Lawson preached an excellent sermon from Our Lord’s Temptation with special reference to “re-dedication”.
