24 November 1920 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Had a good night after a dose of cough Mixt. + Heroin. Took breakfast in bed. Would have cycled to Faldonside but the hoar frost on the roads deterred me. Motored to Faldonside + Peelburnfoot in the afternoon. D. [Graham] was at Ettrickshaws + Bowhill. The frost had gone by night + the pavements were moist. I did not require to go back to Faldonside at night as they ‘Phoned that Phyllis1 was keeping easier.

1 Phyllis Mary ‘Fiff’ Dees (1899-1920), daughter of Robert Irwin Dees (1872-1923) and Edith Mary Boileau Dees née Henderson, the new (1920) tenants at Faldonside; she had been involved in a car accident near Berrybush while travelling between the Gordon Arms and Tushielaw
