30 December 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

A very severe Coryza1 developed during the night + I had a miserable time. Kept my room + mostly in bed but managed to get on with the Summary cards2. David3 came in twice. There was not a good deal doing. I did.

1 Coryza is the Common cold

2 The Muir and Graham medical co-partnership had changed its administration and Dr Muir was undertaking onerous work on record cards which included the so-called Summary cards

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