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

A dull calm coldish day. N.E. A glint of sun about 6 p.m. Tom Alexander left at 9.37. Have enjoyed his visit very much. He goes to visit a friend at Askham Grange near York1. I saw 5 town cases + motored to Faldonside + Yair. Did some ledger work in afternoon. Mousey [Helen Muir] + I dined at Elmpark. The Charles were there + Dav [?] + Norah [?].
