22 May 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Fine day. Cycled to Oakwood + Bluecairn in morning + saw some town cases after. Was not at church. Marked in visits + got those of David1 for last week end. Made preparation for run tomorrow. Supped at Wellwood2. No hot water: gas [heater] shut off.
