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

A nice day clearing away to a hard frost at night. There were frozen places on the roads + at Linglie but mostly they were heavy. I was glad to be able to cycle to Cannon Street, Sunderland Hall, Lowood + back to Wellwood for Xmas lunch at 1. I was feeling seedy however + did not enjoy it. The children were all very happy. H [Helen Muir] + I dined at Elmpark. Erskine1 was there also Jack, Nancy, Barbara + Jack2.

1 James Erskine Harper (1887-1953), Agnes Mackintosh’s son

2 John ‘Jack’ Roberts and Agnes Amelia ‘Nancy’ Roberts née Muir and two of their children – Andrina Henderson ‘Barbara’ and John ‘Jack’ or ‘Jock’
