Hard frost + a clear sunny day. Most of the snow melted off the streets but there are lots lying on the grass + behind walls &c. Had a busy day at Mauldsheugh1. Began at 10 with glands in a Miss Lee’s neck: then Agnes Murray ditto: then Bob Douglas the undertaker for piles + then a child with hernia + 2 boys (Park + Mellan [?]) with adenoids. I had some lunch there + then saw some town cases. Went to evening service. Mousey2 was in bed all day with a cold.
1 Andrew Gray Lumgair’s old house, named ‘Mauldshaugh’ on the 1918 and 1920 Valuation Rolls (though it is ‘Mauldsheugh’ on the 25″ Ordnance Survey Selkirkshire Sheet XII.5 of 1899 and the editor’s reading of the house name in the diaries matches this) is shown as tenanted by Dr David Charteris Graham so the co-partnership appears to have been based there..
2 Helen Frances ‘Mousey’ Muir (1880-1963), Dr Muir’s third daughter
