11 April 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Cold damp day. After seeing some 10 town cases I sat all afternoon at my speech for tonight at a War Memorial event where I was to be Chairman. I had it all written out + in my hand but I stuck! The concert was a fairly good one. There was a good fiddler + Mrs Wilkinson to whom a basket of flowers from Mrs Mackintosh was presented. After getting back at 10.30 had to go down to Walt. Falla’s to see an Australian soldier.
