Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 140
Perth, Scotland [Sept. 8, 1905]  Collinsia grandiflora  Ipomopris elegans Lupinus polyphyllus Eschscholtzia Californica Douglasia nivalis &c &c &c  The monument is surrounded by an iron fence 4 ft. [feet] high. It has no tree nor vine nor plant inside. Just the green grass. It is surrounded by many old tombstones of the folk of Scone. Then we went into the Perth Road of Scone Village and interviewed an old old couple. The old lady (75 years old) said that her mother was a cousin of David Douglas - I think that was the relationship. As Douglas was born over 100 years ago she knew nothing of him but after con[siderable] ::::::::: [Perth, Scotland] Sept. 8, 1905  [con]siderable conversation with Mr. Rodgers who I noticed, freely interlarded his conversation with Scotch words and phrases, we struck out for Old Scone. Going on up the village street for a few blocks we took our way across country through a fine wood of beeches, oaks and birches. After a time we came out on the village street of Old Scone, that is to say, all there is left of it. - a few houses opposite the entrance gate to the grounds of the Earl of Mansfield (Scone Palace). There were several quaint cottages-all of stone. The people at the lodge told Mr. Rodgers that the Douglas cottage had been torn down; that it stood on the same side of the road as the lodge, on land that was now within the Earl's domain.
