023.15 "Luthermuir which at the time of the last report, seems to have been unworthy of notice being at that time only a barren moor is now mostly cultivated and contains a population - of above 1000. On account, however of the decline of manufactures, especially the weaving trade, it is beginning to decrease in population, but to advance in several other respects.

It is pleasing to remark, that it is improving fast in point of morality and religion." (New Stat Act [Statistical Account])
