7 May 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Wind E + a lot of rain with fair intervals. Very wet in evening. Walked in town + to Bridgelands. Went to Newtown [St Boswells] by mistake thinking today was the [?] of the Division but it is tomorrow. Jean came out [from Edinburgh] at 12 + left again at 3. I had a talk with her + told her I disapproved of her engagement. Went to meeting of War Memorial sub committee.
