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

Blustery cold day with some heavy rain + sleet showers. Snow gone in town but lying in patches outside + on hills. I had a busy day from 9.30 a.m. till 7.30 p.m. with 40 minutes for lunch. Motored in forenoon in town (James Pollok1 took about 3/4 of an hour) + to Ravensheugh + Sunderland Hall: there to Midlem + Lilliesleaf + finally to some more town cases, Hospital, Bowhill, Carterhaugh + Ettrickhaugh + a crowd of people [at surgery] from 6 to 7.15.
