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

A gale from NW to N raged all day but it was not a bitterly cold as yesterday. W wind + there was rain although the glass was very low. There was a fair town list today but no County work except that Dav [Dr David Graham] was at Newtown + called at Briarbank. I cycled to Hospital + Goslaw Green + saw the other town cases walking making in all 19 calls. David came up to tea + we went over the various cases + arranged certain fees. Helen [Muir] was at a Child Welfare lecture of Nurse Beck. Wrote Harvey, Liverpool and Allan, Ardrossan a second time re Pilot.
