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

A violent southerly gale with rain + a few flakes of snow. Very cold. Very little doing. Saw 7 or 8 cases including Forest Mill + Michael (Mrs), Cannon Street. David was only at Middlestead + Ravensheugh. Chalmers called me at night about resuscitating the St Andrews Ambulance Committee in connection with the presentation of a Motor Ambulance by Craig Brown.

1 Assume Thomas ‘T’ Craig-Brown (1844-1922); J.P.; tweed manufacturer, public servant and antiquarian
