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

Snowing heavily this morning + up till 10 O’Clock. It was fresh forenoon [?] + there was less wind. There must be at least 7 or 8 inches. The slush in the afternoon was awful. The storms seem to have been general. Luckily there was very little county work. There was a message to George McGill, Sunderland Hall stables + I motored there + out to Banton. Could not get further than the top of [?] Brae. David Murray very ill.
