2 October 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

A very fine day. Sunshine nearly all day + a slight N.W. wind. Clear starlight at night. More trains running : there were 3 each way on our line. Cycled to Wellwood, Pinegrove, Mavisbank + Anderson Road + then Dav. [Dr David Graham] came up + we spent 3 [?] hours going over the ledger. Then I saw some more town cases + got the ledger completed for sending out last quarter’s accounts. Mrs Mackintosh came home. Jean + Helen [Muir] went to the Picture House. Was called at 10 p.m. to Mrs Alexander Harper, Kirkwynd, but did not stay.
