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

Another fine day: very dry. West wind. Cycled round town. Dressed Mrs Arnot’s neck. Called for Jessie Clapperton + saw her + Madge Farquharson. Took the remaining stitches out of Mrs Turnbull’s wounds at the Howe. After lunch walked with Kelty to Longmoss, going by Shawmount + returning by the Camp + Steel Burn. Saw Bella Henderson twice. Wrote Dora. Had a letter from Norah [Graham] from Lodore Hotel, Keswick.
