Very strong NE wind + very dull till between 4 + 5 when the sun came out. David1 came last night on a Ruby Triumph Motorbicycle2. We went down to Faldonside, I in the car + he on his bike, + opened Mrs Dees3 hand under gas. I came back to Philiphaugh + Oakwood. Went down to Faldonside again at night. In the morning I walked to Dunreay4 + Buxton.
1 David Charteris ‘Dav.’ Graham (1889-1963), M.B., medical practitioner and Dr Muir’s business partner
2 It is most likely that this is a ruby red Triumph but with the capitalisation it cannot be ruled out that Dr Muir has seen a motorbike of the Ruby Cycle Co. Ltd., Royal Ruby Works, Altrincham which made a 976 c.c. two cylinder four-stroke
3 Edith Mary Boileau Dees née Henderson (1872-1948), at Faldonside from 1920
4 Dr Muir was at Dunreay presumably to see Andrew Brown (c.1850-1921), hosiery manufacturer
