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

A fine day at last. Hoar frost. Sunshine all day till evening when it got cloudy. Calm + mild. Made 19 town calls cycling + went to Bannerfield, Bowhill Lodge, Black Andro + Thirladean. Had a smoke at Black Andro. Wrote Jean1. Dora at tea at Elmpark. Mellalieus’ kid rather better.
