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

Fine day. Saw a few town cases walking + then motored to Bowhill to see Mrs Ordish1 + [text deleted] and Fauldshope (Mrs James Wilson). Norman Green called to consult me. He + a friend were at Wellwood for tea. Went to evening service.

1 Hannah Ordish (about 1845-1920), housekeeper at Bowhill, see also diary entry for 20 January 1919
