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

Feeling nearly all right today + yesterday’s langour has passed. Cycled early to Yair returning by Hospital. Spent the afternoon making out accounts. David [Graham, co-partner] came up in the little Singer Coupé which he bought as a spec at Skipton. Asked him to see Robert Ballantyne, Mavisbank, who had a suspicion of appendicitis. I cycled down in the evening + found him better.

There was some pretty heavy rain in the afternoon.

1 Singer Motors made some nice little two-seaters such as the 10 H.P. of 1913-1916; perhaps this is what is referred to here?
