7 October 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

A better looking morning. Wind S.W., mild + pleasant: Heavy rain about 1. Bright + sunny after. Saw 7 town cases walking + sat down to the accounts about 11 + finished them at night. Was very little disturbed. David [Graham] came up at night with a most disquieting letter from the B.M.J.1 about the advertisement of Viewfield in the Kelso Mail. “Our enemy hath done this”! Helen [Muir] went up Ettrick with D. [David Graham, co-parner] + called at Gilmanscleuch.

1 The following diary entry states B.M.A. which on balance is more likely to be correct
