10 November 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Some sharp blasts of snow in forenoon + evening + freezing at night. Snow melted on roads at first. Motored to Bowhill + Briarbank + saw 7 town cases. Mrs Ordish improving. Went to meeting of Panel Committee at Galashiels. All there but Doig1. Got back a little after 6. Nancy [Roberts née Muir] came back from Moffat.

1 Perhaps William Doig M.D. (Edin.), of Roxburgh Street, Galashiels [Galashiels Almanac and Directory]
