2 April 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Still wet this morning but fairing about 12 + cycled to Henderland. There was a strong N.E. wind which helped me going but of course retarded me coming back. I had to don my cape at Harewoodglen but doffed it again beyond the Garden. Had tea at Henderland. Found Jim going on well. Got back at 6.30. Hot bath + dressed for dinner! Jean left at 6. Got note from Mrs Wilson asking me to see Jessie Boyd1 who had suddenly lost the sight of an eye.

1 Jessie Milne Brack Boyd (1867-1961), of Faldonside, plantswoman and gardener
