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

A nice day: coldish but dry. In the forenoon motored first thing to Yarrowford Post Office (John Reid) + Hangingshaw where I saw Mrs McIntyre, wife of the new tenant. In the afternoon I walked to Longmoss to see Agnes Fairbairn, took Kelty. The views were clear. One small patch of snow on Windlestrawlaw. Came back by the reservoir (where a party of ladies + kids were boating) + Greenhead. Got the accounts all put up for delivering. David [Graham] was called to Ettrickshaws at night.
