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

Another miserable day of fog + rain from N.E. but calm + mild. Walked to Curror Street, Nursing Home (chlor[oform] for a curetting), Philiphaugh Cottages, Beechwood, High Street + then to Knowepark, Backrow + Russell cottage. No County work for either of us. Was in house all afternoon + worked at books. Alice Muir came to tea with Helen [Muir]. Helen was at women’s missionary meeting.
