25 March 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Brilliant morning + quite fair till evening when there was a little rain. My dyspepsia better + I enjoyed both lunch + dinner. Was not out of town. Cycled to Wellwood, Hospital, Bridge Street [and] Philiphaugh Cottages. Attended meeting of Red X [Cross] Exec. to consider mode of electing to Council. David [Graham, co-partner] was at Broadmeadows + Carterhaugh, Ramsaycleuch + back to Kirkhope Manse to dinner with McKenzie + McDonald McDonald. The Swift broke down at Broadmeadows + he had to ‘Phone for a hire.
