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

Glass [barometer] very low + a very cold N.W. wind. I prophesied snow + certainly it came a shower in the afternoon which kept the hill tops white. Walked out to the [Haining] Henhouse + back by Southport [sic] + went to morning service. After church saw Miss Hall + Mrs Russell + was in the town until evening service when Helen [Muir] also went. I had six [?] messages today. Dav. [David Graham, co-partner] was at Broadmeadows, Blackandro + Hawick. Baptie cycled to Yarrow Cottage + was caught by the snow shower.
