TO THE HONOURABLE

THE BOARD OF SUPERVISION.

MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN,
I HAVE the honour to submit to you my
Report on Peeblesshire for the year ending 1891.
The County of Peebles has the wide area of 354
square miles, but is thinly populated. Altogether
the number living within the area of jurisdiction
of the County Local Authority at the present moment
is less than 9000.
There are two Burghs in the County, namely,
those of Peebles and Innerleithen. The former has
a Medical Officer of Health. The latter is without
one, but has approached a Committee of the Councils
of Mid and West Lothian and Peeblesshire with the
view of obtaining my services.
The most populous places, excluding these Burghs,
are West Linton, Broughton, Calzeat, Skirling, Romanno
Bridge, Mountain Cross, and Drumelzier in the West,
