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

Hesitating between frost + fresh. Very heavy blasts of rain from W. + in afternoon in sheltered places roads very icy. David [Graham, co-partner] better but didn’t do much. I went to Lilliesleaf for him in his car which, though it is fast, is very cramped + uncomfortable. Hiddleston1 ill : rang up and asked for [after] him.
