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

The weather is all that could be desired but for the serious want of rain. The Barometer which for nearly a week stood at 29.7 fell today 0.05. + the wind went from N.E. to nearly N.W. what was of it. There is very little to do. I saw 2 town cases + cycled to Bowhill, Linglie Mill + Bridgelands + then saw 1/2 doz. town cases walking. Got the T.R. & I.S. accounts sent away. David [Graham] was at Newarkburn + Altrieve taking Joe Cotterill with him.
