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

No frost but, although round to W the wind was most bitterly cold. It kept dry however, except for a few flakes of snow till night where it rained. I got on to my bike + went to Heatherlieburn (Ger. measles), Forest Road, Gibson + Lumgair, Hospital &c. Then walked to Hill Street, Byethorn + Backrow + at 1.20 motored to Lilliesleaf to see Jessie Law. Called at Mark Woodger. Wrote Dora + gave her Harvey + Caton’s opinions re Pilot. Helen had tea at Viewfield + went to a concert with Mrs Mackintosh + Agnes.
