1 June 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Pleasant + sunny in forenoon but dull + cold after 4. Rain badly wanted. Two small operations at Mauldsheugh + then I cycled along to Hospital + went to morning service. Was at home all the rest of the day. Read in the garden in the bower. David [Graham, co-partner] was at Ettrick Shaws + Dryden. Helen [Muir] + I supped alone.
