28 July 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Drought continues: N.E. dull all day till 4 or 5 when the clouds chased away + it was a lovely evening. Saw town list of 13. David [Graham] came up at 2.30 + we went over a lot of the cases + fixed time for some of the operations &c. Letter from Helen [Muir] who got to Charley [?] all right. She enjoyed her run to Carlisle in the car.

Took B.S.A. [bicycle] to Stark + Murray as the locking screw doesn’t work + the gear wire needs tightening.
