Virginia Woolf in Dryburgh Abbey - late June, 1938

from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.5, 1936-41, page 153:

Two years ago was the Centenary (of Dryburgh?). I went to the meeting. There was a service - most interesting.  All the Ministers. Five on the platform. Possibly the Moderator. At any rate it was very nice and it was a beautiful day, and the place was very full.  The birds joined in the music.
