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

Another fine day: warm but with a cool N.W. breeze. No rain. Did a town list of 12 cycling + on to Newarkburn + Thirladean. Was called to Mrs Alexr Heatlie, Bridge Street at 2 + got her over at 10 minutes to 4 (a.m.)1. Got tea there. David [Graham, co-partner] had to go to Dryhope at night, Mrs Gray not being so well. Mrs Mackintosh + Helen went to the Picture House.
