11 September 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Strong S.W. gale but without rain: glass rising: pretty cold. Gathered a lot of apples. Saw a few town cases + cycled to Sunderland Hall Lodge1 + garden. Went to evening service. Feeling rather seedy + dyspeptic. I am not getting nearly as much cycling as David2 monopolises the County work. + I the sedentary life is telling on me.

1 Sunderland Hall had more than one lodge so Dr Muir’s destination is unclear

2 David Charteris ‘Dav.’ Graham (1889-1963), M.B., medical practitioner and Dr Muir’s business partner
