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

A very decided fresh with strong W. to S.W. wind. A lot of the snow gone. Dovecot Park quite clear by the evening. Raining in afternoon. Saw nine town cases + motored to Bowhill where I was asked to interview Duke and Duchess [of Buccleuch]. David [Graham, co-partner] had Fordyce out from Edinburgh to curette Mrs D Wright at the House + Norah [?]. Got 7 pheasants + a hare from Jim Scott of Synton.

1 Major James Douglas Corse Scott (1886-), son of John Corse Scott and Esther Jane Scott née Robson Scott
