25 April 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Complete + disagreeable change to dull cold wet weather. There was some heavy rain about 10 but not much after. It was raw + cold + the most awful contrast to yesterday. David1 was called back to camp early so I didn’t see him. Motored in town + to Linglie Cottages, Beechwood + Oakwood. Then to Yair to see Mrs Lindough2. Found them quite nice. Banked + drew some money. Got hair cut. Letter from Dora3 to say Indian affair quite off.
