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

Heavy showers + sunny intervals. David1 came up + we arranged last year’s income + expenditure which are respectively £3019 + £663 = net income £2356. Dav. states that he has made from new private patients whom I would never have got £664 + claims that he should have a bigger share of the profits than a half, + suggests two thirds. I am to think it over. It means that I shall have for 1921-22 £785 instead of £1178 a difference of £393. If I consent it will be on certain conditions.

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