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

Today began with dense welling fog but by midday the mist had cleared + the rest was delightfully bright + warm. The wind though E had no bite in it. It is the pleasantest day since the 1st. After seeing a few town cases walking I cycled to Curror St Dunsdalehaugh through Sunderland Hall to Bogle House (it is a mile from Sund. Hall E. Lodge to N. + 1 mile from latter to Tweed Bridge), Beechwood, Bluecairn and Oakwood. It was after 3 before I got tea. Distributed Communion Cards + voting papers for election of elders. Crowd of people at night.
