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

Not a single message here today + I don’t know that D. [David Graham, co-partner] had any except one in the afternoon to Charles Parker, Broadmeadows. I saw 8 town cases walking in forenoon. Went to the “greetin Supper1” which Jack stood in the County Hotel. It was particularly well done + we had a very pleasant evening. David was there, also Aikman the assessor. Jack made a very good speech. It was a cold wet day from N.E.

  1. I think that the phrase might be “greetin supper” which I believe was given by the Provost for the council, before his departure at the end of his term of office.
