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

Dull windy day + decidedly colder. Some drizzling rain towards evening. David [Graham, co-partner] got a message at 8 to see Tom Anderson + made 3 visits. At night he ‘phoned that he was sinking + that he would remain. Cycled in the town + to Bridgelands. Was chiefly occupied in the afternoon adding up the cash book + find that in total receipts for 1918-19 amount to £1934 18 11 + there is a great discrepancy between the figures + the bank book. Bella [Paulin] in bed.
