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

A fine day : glass rising S.W. to N.W. Almost nothing to do. Saw Edith Scott Noble’s little boy at Braeside1 + D [Dr David Graham] removed tonsils + adenoids : from there walked to Brady, Kirkwynd. Was twice at church. After morning service had a 4 m.p.h. walk up Loan to top of golf course + down by Burns Hole [?]. Took Kelty. Had a turn of dyspepsia last night. Supped at Wellwood.

1 Assume James Robert Scott Noble (1915-), son of Edith Alice Scott Noble née Hutton (1893-1974) and Robert Scott Noble, tweed manufacturer, they had married in 1914
