23 December 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Freezing on ground + snow lying in shade, on green + on hills but very little. It was fresh all day with a little rain. Jean [Muir] rang at 6. I was up at Bowhill in the forenoon + back to Broadmeadows in afternoon where there was a false alarm of S.F. [Scarlet Fever?] in a child of James Goodfellow. D. [David Graham, co-partner] did Sunderland Hall as he was at Bridgelands + Lindean School. Got Xmas cards from Stelk [Stelek?], Lockharts, Mrs Ramsay etc. Helen very busy with Xmas tree for child welfare.
