30 January 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Feeling A very fine day: dry, mild + sunny. It is marvellous to see the snowdrops + aconite fully out. I had a very easy day + went to forenoon service. Spent the afternoon at the books + wrote Jean1. Also Dr Graham2 (Edin.) asking him to come here + lecture to the Red Cross. Janet Dunlop3 came to supper.
