6 September 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Very heavy rain during the night, fine day with a shower in the evening: S.W. Extraordinary small amount of work. I made 7 visits + Dav. [Dr David Graham, co-partner] was at Lilliesleaf. I marked out a lot of paid accounts. Looked in at Wellwood. Nancy1 saw Rennie2 on her way with Jack to Troon on Monday1.

1 Agnes Amelia ‘Nancy’ Roberts née Muir (1878-1948), Dr Muir’s daughter and wife of John ‘Jack’ Roberts junior (1876-1966), Mill owner and Provost of Selkirk, later knighted “for political and public services in Selkirkshire”

2 The Reverend James Rennie (1826-1924), church of Scotland minister and widowed husband of Catherine Stewart Muir thus Dr Muir’s brother-in-law
