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

Wind round to N.N.W., damp, raining in afternoon. My cold developing with Laryngitis + hoarseness. Saw a dozen town cases. Letter from Dora [Muir] enclosing an army draft for £43 10 0 her War Bonus – which I put in deposit receipt for her. Wrote Jean [Muir] also. David [Graham, co-partner] was at Borthwickbrae, seeing the Scott Noble child, Hawkshaw + Fauldshope.
