Letter from Helen [Muir] to say she was coming home on Wednesday + later a wire that she would come tomorrow. Message to see Cath. Duff1, house tablemaid at Faldonside. Gave her a hypo of Heroin over the Sacrum + left. When I was at Bridgeheugh the gardener came cycling to ask me to go back. Jessie [Brack Boyd2] had got frightened at the effect of the Heroin. As she was leaving for Rodono1 this afternoon I promised to go down again which I did at 5. Had some 3 Vaccinations at night.
1 Not identified
2 Jessie Milne Brack Boyd (1867-1961), of Faldonside, plantswoman and gardener
3 It is not obvious why Jessie Boyd chose Rodono [Ettrick, Valuation Roll, though Canmore states Yarrow], the majority of which was owned by Hugo Richard Charteris (1857-1937), 11th Earl of Wemyss and March, unless she has gone to stay long term at the Rodono Hotel
