4 August 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Weather the same + N.W. blowing Wind round to S.W. + rain from 9.30 till after three. Cycled to Longmoss before breakfast + there after met Dav. [Dr David Graham, co-partner] at the house + Scott’s, Mill Street [illegible] then cycled to Dunsdale + Spionkop. It was raining so hard[?] then that I gave up the idea of at trip to Windlestrawlaw which I had planned with P Brown. When it faired I cycled to General’s Bridge. David + Norah [Graham] left at 3 for Hawick in their car. I did some book work. Lot of excursionists in the town in large char-a-bancs. Got 1/2 doz eggs from the “Magic Cave”. The Hospital garden has been devastated by Wilson’s cows.
