Dull mild damp sunless S.W. Feeling better today. Cycled to Forest Road, Ettrickbank Mill, Dunsdale + Curror Street. Made out accounts in afternoon. Got Lilliesleaf, Yarrow + Ettrick P.C. [parish council ?] screws [sic]. Helen1 went to the Picture House with Matron Waugh.2
1 Helen Frances ‘Mousey’ Muir (1880-1963), Dr Muir’s third daughter and sometime housekeeper.
2 Matron or Nurse Waugh has not been identified though it may be possible to do so when the 1921 Census is published later this year; Dr Muir referred to her in November 1921 so by late 1922 she has been at Selkirk for a while.
