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

Hoar frost this morning a very lovely day. Calm + sunny. The autumn tints are magnificent. I was at Blackandro Cottage + the Hangingshaw + B Meadows woods were a sight worth seeing. Made 8 town calls cycling + on to Philiphaugh, Bowhill West Lodge + Blackandro. Pollok called in the afternoon1. He has been at St Anne’s in Lancashire + also at Blackpool.
