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

A damp mild day with a little rain. Stewart1 was not seriously ill after all. I saw 13 town cases motoring + called for Jessie Boyd2. Also went to Beechwood to see Mrs (or Miss?) Thomson + Mrs Elliot, Ladylands Toll.

1 Stewart Muir Roberts (1908-2003), Dr Muir’s grandson

2 Assume Jessie Milne Brack Boyd (1867-1961), of Faldonside, plantswoman and gardener
