Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 142
Perth, Scotland [Sept. 8, 1905]  They said that the well was there still, that the pump belonging to the well was in existence - that was all. The woman did not want us to come inside evidently and Mr. Rodgers did not press the point. The Earl was "at home" - which seemed to make a difference. So back along the pleasant country lane we went towards Perth, passing old mile stones set in the ground at the side of the road. Had tea at Mr. Rodgers, then for a pleasant walk along the Tay bank, for a glimpse of Scone Palace 9once the seat of the ancient Scottish kings and where the Scone stone originated which is now in Westminster Abbey and on which all Kings are crowned, then to Perth ::::::::: [Perth, Scotland] Sept. 8, 1905for a walk past the house of the "Fair Maid of Perth," St. John's Church, through old closes, then to the Museum, finally to the train where I parted from the most hospitable Mr. Rodgers who had been so painstaking and sympathetic on my behalf, taking his camera to the church yard and exposing the plates in favor of the monument. The monument stands in the New Scone churchyard. One can see the monument from the road just before reaching the village, as one follows the road out from Perth, on the left-hand side, as one approaches it; it is two miles or a trifle more from the Perth Bridge. At 7:40 I took train back to Stirling and put up at Smith's Temp. [Temperance] Hotel.
