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

28th Princess Mary’s Wedding1

A most extraordinary day. It began with a sunny sky. [Word deleted] + moderate wind. Got duller after midday: began to rain: very dark between 4 + 5 with a peal of thunder: torrential rain + then snow. I walked round the town + to Dunsdale and after lunch motored to Buxton, Beechwood + Linglie Cottages. Made out a list of our Roxburghshire panel with mileages2 + sent them to Barrie3 [word deleted].

2 It looks as if mileages are being collected either for audit or as some sort of ready reckoner for travel claims

3 Barrie is not yet identified
