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

Not quite as cold. Wind still N.W. just less strong. Walked down to Gray, Mavisbank + Wellwood before church. Went to morning service + after it cycled to Hospital, Kirkwynd + Castle Street. David [Graham, co-partner] came up in afternoon + we addressed all the town accounts + some county ones + I got the former arranged for delivery + the latter for posting. Supped at Wellwood1. Jack feeling better2.

1 Dr Muir’s daughter Agnes Amelia ‘Nancy’ Roberts née Muir and son-in-law John ‘Jack’ Roberts junior and their family lived at Wellwood, Ettrick Terrace; collectively Dr Muir called them the Wellwooders

2 Jack Roberts had been unwell, see diary entry for 28 August 1919
