3 January 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Feeling better + rose to breakfast which was as 9: but I didn’t go out. It was very dull tending to thaw + snowed sleetily at night. David was going to Sunderland Hall + Fairnilea + Jessie Boyd went with him, dropping dropping him at the Melrose Road end while Baptie took her on to Faldonside. In afternoon D. was at Lilliesleaf + Borthwickbrae + was very late of getting back so I was glad when Annie got a chance up with Davidson of Deloraine1.

1 William Davidson (1877-1946), Langholm-born farmer, was tenant at Easter Deloraine, Kirkhope, in the 1911 Census and 1920 Valuation Roll
