Proposer of the Toast  “Commercial Interests of the District”  1890

Reply to the Toast  “The Lasses”  1891

A. G. Moir became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’ c.1889 and was first mentioned in Toast List/Programme in 1890

At a Committee Meeting held on 28th January 1891 to discuss the success of the recent Supper, the following was minuted :

Regarding the Poem made by George Y. Robertson introducing in it several of the oldest members of the Club, and which had been recited by him at the Anniversary (Supper), it was reported that Mr Moir was having it printed at his own expense. In recognition of this kindness, the Club desire to record their indebtedness both to Mr Moir and Mr Robertson.”

The poem to which the entry referred was the “Bard’s Oration” at the 1891 Supper;
George Robertson was Let it Blaw’s first Bard.
One of the printed copies was filed in the Club’s Minute Books. It’s been adapted for this website and can be found at “Ragged Rhymes“.
In handwritten notes on the printed copy, A. G. Moir was referred to as Alexander Moir, the only time in Club Records that his full name was used.
