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

Less wind + a good deal of sunshine but coldish. Very pleasant. Cycled to Bridgelands, Faldonside, Fairnilee E. Lodge + Bogle House. Was not out afterwards till evening service. Jack, Nancy + Barb1. came to supper. I got all my preparation for an early start with Archie Robertson2 for a cycle ride tomorrow, including shaving!
