Nearly all Dovecot Park cut for hay = 4 ricks up
Less wind today though still N.E. + more sun. It was quite hot at the foot of the garden where we had Miss Waugh1 from Viewfield to tea. I had almost nothing to do except at the Home where the younger Miss Taylor2 has chickenpox. I also saw Mrs Dobson3, Forest Road + Jane Johnstone4. Went to forenoon service with Boyack5.
1 This would be one of the medical staff but she is otherwise unidentified
2 Not identified
3 Assume Helen Dobson née Hope (c.1859-1920), widow of George Dobson, woollen designer, living at Kirkwood, Forest Road, Selkirk, 1920 and died 24 September 1920
4 Assume Jane Pringle Johnston (1868-1920), confectioner, of 14 West Port, Selkirk; the daughter of Alexander Johnstone, tailor and clothier, and Jane Johnstone née Armstrong
5 Miss Boyack was a friend of Dora’s who stayed with the Muirs from 3rd to 31st August 1920; perhaps they knew one another from wartime nursing (she went on a number of Dr Muir’s calls and assisted on at least one occasion) but she is otherwise unidentified
