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

There had been a heavy shower early this morning but it turned out a lovely day: perfectly calm + very hot, the hottest day of the summer I think. I was no farther than Philipburn Stables. Saw 12 cases + did some work at books [accounts]. Bella [Paulin, housekeeper] going about again. Lovely summer night with moonlight. Letter from Frank Muir offering to come September 1st. Asked Nancy [Roberts née Muir] to take him then.
