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

Complete change of weather strong S W gale and heavy rain all forenoon but it cleared from about 2 till 5-6. Jack and Nancy [Roberts] did not go to the Races yesterday as I had a bilious attack but they went today. I was mostly in the house except that I ran down to see Jessie [Miller née Rennie] in the afternoon but found her out. Jack called for me on his way back from the races + I dined with him, Frank + Nancy at Troon this being the anniversary of Nancy’s wedding. Mitchell motored me back.
