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

Very hard frost + roads dry but rained + sleeted [illegible] at night. Still feeling seedy + shivery and had breakfast in bed intending to remain there but in the end dressed + went out + saw a few cases. Dav. went to Sunderland Hall for me but he was colded + did not go to Wellwood to which I went at 8 + left before 10. There were both children + adults. Got a very nice letter from Agatha Purvis (who is living for the winter at Rinaldy1) + another from May Rodger + replied to them both.

1 Rinaldi, perhaps Firenze, Toscana, Italy
