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

I thought of going for a cycle run today but and rose at 6 for that purpose but there was such a S.W. gale + the glass was still falling that I gave it up. It rained a little in the morning but not much. There was very little doing. David came up + we sat till 12 o’clock over money matters which, with the aid of Sandie Telfer, we have now got squared. To date we have drawn last year £1941 + there is still to come. The expenses are heavy = about £575 but they will never be so much again. Walked to Forest Road + Ettrickhaugh Road. In evening had to go down to Sunderland Hall to see the girl Rose.
