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

A dry day with a strong sharp W.N.W. wind. Bella [Paulin] still in bed. Walked to Curror Street, Ashybank, Sloethornbank, Heather Mill [parenthesis scored out] Mauldsheugh (Lady N.1), Glebe + then to Bank, Kirkwynd, Backrow + Tait’s Hill. Made out list of accounts. David [Graham] came to tea + we put up most of the County ones [accounts].
