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

A glorious morning: brilliant sunshine which continued all day though there was some cloud in afternoon. It wasn’t too warm however with an E. to S.E. wind. Still it was a delicious change from the weather of the last 3 weeks. Was called bef to Mrs Murray, Backfeus, but nothing happened. Saw her again before I went to bed. Cycled to Bannerfield, Broomfield, + Henhouse. Finished addressing + arranging the town accounts. Helen in Edinburgh with Nancy, Louise + Esau1. They were at a theatre.

1 This appears to be a family joke, see also diary entry for 15 April 1920
