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

I had a terrible night coughing which made my temples ache. Kept my bed all forenoon + went to the smoke room in afternoon. David looked in. He went to Bowhill + Thirlestane. Helen + Ailie motored with Nancy1 to Tushielaw + had tea with Norman Grieve + a Mrs Rinnell. I wrote the former about an eagle he had seen + about Traquair.

1 Helen Frances ‘Mousey’ Muir (1880-1963), Dr Muir’s third daughter; Ailie Brack Boyd Wilson or Boyd-Wilson, later Ailie Brack Boyd Wilson Milne (about 1891-1955) and Agnes Amelia ‘Nancy’ Roberts née Muir (1878-1948), Dr Muir’s second daughter
