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

(Scott) Painters busy at the outside wood work + Smith at the gates + railing.

Decidedly cold today, wind W. & N.W. Shower at 9 + a little in evening: Tweed + Ettrick full. Dav. [Graham] better but didn’t go out to see anybody. Cycled to Elmrow, Goslaw Green &c + up to Oakwoodmill: called at Mauldsheugh + on to Bogle House, East Lodge, Dunsdale + Forest Road. Vaccinated 40 at night = 27 private + 13 insured. Had to send away a lot as I ran out of Lymph. Paid my War Memorial Subscription. £20 + gave Ross the £1 I got from Mrs McGill. Drew £200 from M & G [Muir & Graham co-partnery].
