4 February 1922 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Quite 2 inches of snow this morning + fallen very quietly so that trees +c were all Xmas like. It thawed during the day but was freezing again at night. I had a big list with several of David’s1 as he went to the Scotland-Wales football match at Edinburgh2. I did most of it cycling motoring including Haining + Beechwood.

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

2 This refers to the Scotland vs Wales Five Nations rugby union game on 4 February 1922 at Inverleith, Edinburgh, a 9–9 draw (though Scotland also played Wales at football the same afternoon, at the Racecourse, Wrexham, which Wales won 2-1)
