21 August 1922 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Raining up till 11 + then steady on from 3.30. Wind round to E. at night which accounts for the glass keeping up. Now that Dav.1 is back I am having little to do. Saw 6 cases + passed young persons at Ettrick + Forest Mills2. Made out some accounts in the afternoon. Peter3, all alone, cycled to Yarrowford + back by Dunsdale.

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

2 It is not clear what was being “passed” but Dr Muir evidently had a role in factory health and safety; his diary records six or seven visits to Forest Mill in 1921-22.

3 Peter Allan, evidently a charge of Dora’s, but not (yet) identified.
