15 February 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Wind changed to S.W. Quite fresh. Blowy + rainy all day, at times heavy. Motored early to Yair (Dubs nor better [illegible]). Sir Geo. Beatson1 could come which he did, motoring with Tom Smith + Nancy. Went back at 6 + met Beatson. Digitalin had improved the pulse + pulmonary congestion less. Was at morning service + supped at Wellwood. Had to see Mrs Tait, Castle Street, after.

1 Sir George Thomas Beatson 1848-1933), K.C.B, K.B.E, D.L., British physician and pioneer oncologist
