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

No frost. Fine weather continues. Warmer than yesterday. Motored first thing to Thirlestane + came back via Hartleap to Hangingshaw where people called McIntyre have come for Easter. I saw no one but one of the maids who fell down stairs on Sunday + had concussion. Mrs McIntyre phoned me after I got home. Called for John Reid + Alexr Ruickly, Yarrowford1. Dav [Dr David Graham] came up + helped to address the accounts.

1 Alexander Ruickle, retired, lived at Yarrowford
