Most brilliant morning when I was called up at 6.30 for Mrs Blake, Fernlee, nothing came of the summons though I saw her several times. Dav. [Dr David Graham] motored to Edinburgh in connection with his mother’s death. I cycled to Gibson & Lumgair + Mauldsheugh where I saw 3 of the patients. Miss Erskine, Mrs Eard… and [Mr] Cheek [?]. I gave the latter a hypo of [illegible] + I was sent for later to see him. Went up General’s Bridge + back to Mauldsheugh. Attended for Dav. [Graham] the first meeting of the Child Welfare at Victoria Hall. Spoke seriously to Dora [Muir] about Pilot + to my grief find that she is still corresponding with him.
1 Dr Muir’s youngest daughter Andrina Dorothy ‘Dora’ Muir (1882-1978) had met a medic called Dr Pilot while travelling with her nursing duties and they became engaged but Pilot turned out to be married, see for instance diary entries for 12, 14 and 17 March 1919
