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

Bitterly cold. A shower in the morning had some sleet + in the afternoon there were snow showers which left the slates + grass white at night. I had a full day + did it motoring, first in town (13 cases) + Shielshaugh1 + then Cotfield2, with 4 more town cases + a good many people in at night.

1 The Warwick family was at Shielshaugh, Selkirk, grid reference NGR NT418,265

2 Cotfield, near Harelaw, Lilliesleaf, grid reference NT532,226, just south of the Drove Road between Grundistone Heights and St Boswells.
