Sy Scholfield quotes from "Chasing Lost Time: The Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff: Soldier, Spy and Translator" by Jean Findlay (Random House, 2014), p. 15: "On 25 September 1889, in [Weedingshall House, Polmont, Falkirk] ... Charles Kenneth, was born. His father took over his mother's diary at this point and recorded that he arrived quickly at half past eleven and weighed nine pounds, and that nurse Paton arrived at half past one and 'took possession of us.'"
