10 May 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

There has been no rain today. I imagined I saw several Swifts this morning. There was less wind, W. Cycled round town + then to Lewenshope + Sundhope. Came back the 11.35 miles in 57 minutes. Got tea at 3.15. Was not out after. Mellalieu took his child1 to Edinburgh to see Thomson. Dav. went to Fauldshope + Ramsaycleuch. Wrote Helen [Muir].

1 Dorothy Mary Mellalieu (1919-1920), daughter of William Norman Mellalieu, music teacher, and Judith Anne Mellalieu née Hardwick, born 6 November 1919 at Roseneuk, The Glebe, Selkirk
