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

Dull windy morning W. [wind]. Some sunshine in afternoon. Rather cold: no rain. Helen + I breakfasted alone the first time since July 24th. Cycled in town, Brown + Allan, Sunderland Hall + Yair. Railway strike chief topic in paper. A fair number of trains are running. Nancy1 had a fall from her horse on Gala Rigg + had slight concussion. Dav. [Graham] who had seen Mitchell coming in leading her horse went out to Whitmuirhall Toll + brought her home. Got books all right for October.
