WITH ECCLESIASTICAL HE   LEADS   US   ON
He leads us on by paths we did not know;
Upward Pie leads us, though our steps be slow,
Though   oft   we  faint   and   falter   on   the   way,
Though   storms   and   darkness  oft   obscure  the
day,
Yet when the clouds are gone
We know He leads us on.
He leads us on through all the unquiet years;
Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and
fears
He guides our steps.   Through all the tangled
maze
Of   sin,   of   sorrow,   and  o'erclouded   days
We know His will is done;
And still He leads us on.
And He, at last, after the weary strife—
After the restless fever we call life—.
After  the  dreariness,  the aching pain,
The  wayward  struggles  which have proved  in
vain,
After   our   toils   are   past—
Will give us rest at last. Dear   Lord   of   my   First   Communion,
Thou  wilt  come to me  to-day,
To a   heart  that  bids   Thee  welcome
With   a   love   I  cannot   say.
By   the  Grace  of  that' First   Sweet  Visit
To   the   heart   of   a   little   child,
Dear Lord of my First Communion,
Oh,   keep  me  undefiled.
Dear   Lord   oi   To - da y' s   Communion,
Oh   my   Saviour and my  King,
I   have   nothing   fit   to   offer,
1   have   only   shame   to  bring.
But  Thou  comest  with  all  Thy power,
With   Thy   Love  and   Thy   Purity,
Dear Lord of To-day's Communion,
To  give   them   all   to  me.
Dear  Lord  of  my  Last   Communion,
When   I   need   Thee   at   the   end,
When  Thou  comest,   my  own   Good   Shepherd,
Thy   weak   creature  to  defend,
For   the  sake  of  the  Wounds,  the  Sorrow
Thou   didst bear on the  Cross for me,
Dear  Lord   of  my   Last   Communion,

z EMIGRATION  THE   OiiLY
REMEDY
SCOTSMEN'S PLIGHT
Special to " People's Journal."
Emigration! To the Scottish islander it
is. a word fraught with race significance. In
it lies the expression of the force that has
made the Scot the ruler and the subject in.
every state under the sun.
In four syllables it gives the key to the
psychology of a people, than., whom none -.is
more sentimentally soil-bound but who
have been forced by circumstances to,fear
themselves from the native heath. It explains the literature - and thought of the
Celt.
Emigration! It seems to be the only
unhappy solution of the existence prolem
in the Western Isles. In spite of increased
expense, a second contingent of 300 islanders
ot Barra, who are leaving the island for
"the broad meads and hoary woods" of
Canada, are on the way to a kindlier West.
•The soil is poor.in Barra and there is Rot
sufficient to maintain a growing population
in comfort or even bare necessities. Daily
the problem gets more acute and the only
solution seems to be to depopulate the island
to some extent so that something may be
left for those who remain.
With this end in view, the Rev. Andrew
McDonnell, a native of Glengarry, and
one-time priest in St Benedict Monastery,
Fort Augustus, who has taken a deep interest in the plight of the islanders, went
to Canada to see what could be accomplished. .With the Conditions in Barra n
his mind, he has worked actively in the land
of the maple leaf and has succeeded in
making arrangements for the acquisition of
sufficient good land upon which to settle tho
300 islanders, and to provide for easy means
of conveying the emigrants to their new
homes. The place for which the islanders
are bound is Chatairi, in Ontario, and as
soon as they arrive there they will step into
homesteads already bespoken and provided
for them.
This large-spirited priest visited the
Hebridean islands last summer and made
all the necessary arrangements and is esc
pected to be in the highlands and islands
&is year again, probably in the month of
June. AGENCIES.

"Of  the   fifty   families  who  came  to

"ien  have found employment in Manila in preparation for their final sett-lent   in  Alberta.    About  half  the Al-

■"grpat haste  has been made as  is possible  and advisable  in  such an  undertaking."
Mr. Black gave credit to the soldiers'
settlement officials at Calgary and Edmonton for  their efforts in the matter.
"From     an     unauthorized     source,"
added the deputy minister, "before leaving  Scotland   a   few  of  the   party  received  the Impression that farms fully
equipped  would  be available  for  them
on  arrival  without  cash  payment  and
| on long terms.   Any disappointment ex-
pressecs, and it has been comparatively
little,   has   been   due   mainly   to   this
cause.     Those   now   at   Red   Deer   are
very  comfortably housed and  well  fed.
"The    settlement    of    these    people
[ from  the   islands  of  western   Scotland
I marks a beginning of a new system in
this   country.     It   is   believed   that   by
; providing-     new     settlers     with     such
j guidance as will  prevent their becoming located on land incapable of being
successfully farmed, or on any land at
a price above its value, a gTeat stimulus
towards   a   land-ward   movement   will
have been made.    It is also part of the
plan to advise settlers In the purchase
of stock and equipment and in the management of their farms for a year or
more." <46c/

TO BE GIVEN
RESERVE LAND
Saddle   Lake   Indian   Land
Handed Over to S.S.B.
to  Be Recalled
Sixty-one quarter sections of the
Saddle Lake Indian reserve which
were turned over last fall to the'
Soldiers' Settlement board, have
again been released by the board as
the result of representations made
by Father Tes-sier to the authorities
at Ottawa, and will be offered for sale
to French Canadian settlers at the
end of the present week.
At the time the land was taken by
the Soldier Settlement board a strong
protest was made to the Ottawa
authorities by the' French Canadian
settlers of the Saddle Lake district.
It was pointed out that the district
was essentially a French Canadian
one, and if it were placed in the
hands of the S.S.B. the result would
be that the land might be taken up
by persons who were not congenial to
the French. For a time the protest
was not heeded, but recently Father
Tessier has himselfl gone to Ottawa
and brought the case before the government and its supporters. The result is the reopening of the «land to
French occupation.

Rev, A. MacDonell,
Glandonald, Alberta.
My dear Father MacDonell:
<SM"
I am grateful to you for your letter of Sept. 28th.
I did not answer it at once as I wish to take it up at our Bishop's
meeting.
le had a meeting with Mr. Blair sometime ago and
your name and Society were brought up for discussion. Mr. Blair
at that time told us that, due to the fact that these children were
being handled through the Provincial Agencies and Children's Aid
Societies, they did not see that there would be a place for you.
Due to the faet that the matter was left to be handled by Bishop
Nelligan and Mr*. Blair, it was thought wise to leave the matter to
Bishop Nelligan so that he might talk matters over again and see
where and how you might best be able to help. Unfortunately Bishop
Nelligan is going or has gone overseas. He will, however, be back
shortly and then the matter can be taken up again with Mr. Blair.
Thanking you, I am,
Devotedly^ yours in Christ,

April 10,   1943,
Dear Major MacDonell,
I am more than obliged to you for
sending me Pipe Major MacMillan's march.
I am sure that the music is a great
deal better than the subject. To me it is a
very valued compliment to be associated with
this excellent composition of Pipe music. It
made me want to try to learn to play the Pipes
myself.
It brings back memories of the days
of the 85th Pipe Band and Pipe Major Mcintosh,
along with you and all of his comrades.
I am writing Pipe Major MacMillan
a note expressing my deep appreciation.
Yours very truly,
W> Major R. A. MacDonell,
Assistant to Principal Chaplain (RC),
Department of National Defence,
Ottawa, Ontario. Re*.Sir,
In answer to your letter,which I recaivsd on the 27th.Oct.25. I am more
than surprised that a man in Holy Ordsrs and wearing the garb of a Catholic Pries^
should so far forget himself as to writ® such an insulting latter to mnyona,  with
out firat making proper investigation. Even if your insults were true,aaa a Priest
you should be the last man to slander anyone.
You say I neverw worked any longer than on# xaonth on any job. What is the use of
•#•$ man working longer when he cant get his wages,? for work he has done. You say
I cant work alongside a Hebridean. I have worked with there, and better than then,
( facta I «an prove ) You say I came to Canada of my own fr<pe will (granted)But
the fly goes into the spiders web of ita own free will,but once in the spider sees
it stops there. So you human spiders are decoying poor families into your web,for
your own financial gains. Was it to deal in the slave traffic that you took the vow
of a Catholic Priest?. If it wa3 then for God's sake throw off your garb and don't
be hiding under the cloak of religion,'- and come out in yo'ir  true colora,namely a
traffioer in slaves for the British and Canadian Governments. If it was to spread
propagation of the Catholic Chirch.go and do penance.( first) for you havs wilfully
broken the eight eomraandment (namely )- " Thou shalt not bear false witness against
thy neighbour.

This Fund has been incorporated and established under the
laws of the Dominion of Canada for the education to the
priesthood of Catholic men of Highland Scottish origin.
The Society consist of fifteen Foundation Directors whose
tenure of office is for life—of these fifteen Directors, five are
priests; they form the ecclesiastical Committee of the Society.
On the death of a Foundation Director or on his resignation,
another gentleman with the necessary qualifications, will be
appointed to his place by the Foundation Directors. These
Directors are representatives of all the Provinces of Canada
except P.E.I,  which has a Scottish Society of like purpose.
Ten Directors will be elected annually from the membership
—Membership consists of:—
1. Life members on payment of $50.00.
2. Ordinary members—annual payment $5.00.
3. Priests may become members by offering Holy Mass 5
times a year for deceased members.
All Directors must be of Scottish origin and sympathetic
with the purposes of the fund.
FUNDS OF THE SOCIETY
All moneys received shall be deposited in at least three Trust
Companies incorporated under the laws of the Dominion of
Canada. The interest on all moneys so deposited by the Corporation shall be exclusively expended on:— 1. The education of boys at St. Francis Xavier's University
of Antigonish for the period of their course leading to the
degree of Bachelor of Arts.
2. Paying for the maintenance and tuition of boys during
the period of their training at the Scots College at Rome,
or other Roman College or University as may be agreed
upon.
The young men or boys will be selected from Candidates who
have passed through High School (Lower Matriculation) and
have secured 70% of the marks in 3/5 of the subjects in their last
year of High School.
The Letters Patent state that the Scots' College Fund of
Canada has been incorporated for the following purposes and
objects viz:—
1. To form a fund to be used exclusively for the education
to the priesthood of young men of Highland Scottish
Catholic origin.
2. To select Candidates for assistance from the said fund.
3. To administer the fund in the assistance of the said
Candidates for education to the priesthood.
4. To carry on such other operations as may be useful or
convenient in connection with the purposes aforesaid.
Each Director, Life Member, or ordinary member will make
it a matter of duty and a labour of love, to obtain one other
member at least in the course of each year.
Eacfe Director, Life Member, or ordinary member, will lose
no opportunity of bringing the purposes of the fund to the notice of any one who might, be interested and who might be led to
devise, bequeath, or give money to the fund. THE STUDENTS
The young men who are accepted for the benefits of the
fund will be expected to make the best use of the unique opportunity that is theirs.
The Directors of the fund would urge that the young men
who get this opportunity of studying in Europe have as a particular aim and object in their lives to develop in their hearts and
souls great love and devotion and loyalty to Saint Peter the
Prince of the Apostles.
1. It is suggested that they make a special study of the
mediaeval period of European History.
2. It is further suggested that study should be directed to
the social nature of the church and her doctrines, and
the relation of these to the life of the people. This will
enable the priest to play an effective part in the remoulding on Christian lives of the social and economic
life of this country.
Finally let them not forget that they are descendants of
those who in the Story of Scotland were known as "The Gentlemen of the North". Let them cherish the tradition and live up
to it. Chiefship of the MacDonald's        A i a t <?
Editor: The Post-Record, Sir:— (J
I was much interested in the excerpts published by Rev. A. W. R. MacEenzie
from the Lord Lyon's decision in the matter of the chiefship of the MacDonald's.
Before it was published I had been asked to write something on the subject
for a friend who is interested, and had prepared the following notes.  I am
rather proud to see that my conclusions agree with those of the Lord Lyon.
(Mr. MacKenzie is in error regarding the claimants of the chief ship. The
controversy was between the families of Sleat, Clanronald and Glengarry only.)
Here are the notes I prepared:
"The question of ChiefsMp of a Scottish Clan has to be considered in the
light of ancient Celtic law and custom. It would appear that while the chief-
ship was hereditary in one family, it did not necessarily pass from father to
eldest son though it actually did in most cases. According to Sir Thomas
Innes of Learney, Lord Lyon, King of Arms, the actual chief could name his
successor, and it could and did happen that a younger son, or a brother, was
named chief because of proven ability to lead the clan. A chief so chosen was
always accepted as lawful, and it foes not appear that the claim of the dispossessed elder son and his descendants was recognized.
All this has to be kept in mind in discussing the question of the chief-
ship of Clan Donald. The ancient Kings (afterwards Lords) of the Isles, were
undoubted chiefs of the whole clan. The present controversy over the chiefship
arose in this way:
John, 7th (this must be a misprint) Lord of the Isles, married Amy MacRuari,
who was related to him within the forbidden degrees. By her he had three sons
of whom the eldest died before his father. The second, Reginald, became his
father's heir, but John repudiated his wife, and married Princess Margaret,
daughter of Robert II. It is claimed, and I think truly, that the first marriage
was performed under a valid dispensation, but John evidently thought it would
be good policy to ally himself with the Royal House. The King was willing to
consent to an arrangement which would turn a possible rival into a powerful
friend. In such circumstances church regulations would not be allowed to stand
in the way, and so John took the Princess Margaret as his second wife. By her
he had Donald and others. Now, it was undoubtedly the wish of John, and of the
King also, that children of the Princess should succeed to the Lordship of the
Isles, and the Chiefship of the Clan. It is said that the Clan, and the vassal
clans as well, would prefer Reginald, but it seems he was induced to relinquish
his claims in favour of his younger half-brother, and to accept vast estates on
the mainland and in the Isles. Reginald, according to the Clan historians, died
at Castle Tirrim, in Moidart, in 1386, and was succeeded by Allan, from whom
comes the designation of all Clanranald chiefs—Mae-ic-Ailean. His second son,
Donald, was ancestor of the: Glengarry branch of the Clan. The Glengarry family
claim to be descended from the eldest son, that is, claim that Donald was eldest,
and therefore they aire senior to Clanranald. Against this is the authority of
the Clan historians, and the fact, as it would appear, that Reginald made Moidart
his headquarters, and would naturally be succeeded there by his eldest son. Also
Innes of Learney, mentioned above, lists Allan first among the children of Reginald.
The Lordship of the Isles was assumed by the Crown towards the end of the
15th Century. (This is one of the titles borne by the Prince of Wales.) The
last Lords of the Isles,  descended from Donald, son of John and the Princess
Margaret, were represented afterwards by the family of Sleat. In this family,
also, a break occurred. Sir Alexander MacDonald of Sleat was created Lord
MacDonald in 1796. He married a Bosville, of Yorkshire, and through her the
Yorkshire estate cams into the MacDonald family. Godfrey, 3rd Lord, settled
these estates on Ms eldest son Alexander, who took the name Bosville. The r
peerage, and the Sleat estates, came to another son, Godfrey, and the arrangement was confirmed by an Act of Parliament. In 1910 the head of the Bosville
family took the name Bosville-MacDonald, and asserted his claim to the chief-
ship of the Sleat family. Now, it appears that Innes of Learney has declared
Lord MacDonald of Sleat to be head of that family, acting, I presume, on the
assumption that the original arrangement was quite lawful, and also on the old
Celtic law of Tanistry, which recognized the right of a chief to name his
successor. This would seem to. settle the matter so far as the family of Sleat
is concerned, for the Lord Lyon's decision is such matters is final.
As for the Chiefship of the whole Clan:—Clanranald claims it as senior
descendant of Reginald of the Isles, and Glengarry makes the same claim. As I
see it the case stands thus:— The Lords of the Isles from Donald, half-brother
of Reginald, on, were accepted as heads of the- clan. They were represented by
the House of Sleat, and, according to Lord Lyon, the present Lord MacDonaM of
Sleat is lawful head of that House. So we have:—
Senior representative of Reginald, heir by birth to the Lordship of the
Isles, and of the ancient Lords of the Isles—MacDonali of Clanranald.
Senior representative by blood, of the House of Sleat, Bosville-MacDonald.
De facto (and lawful) representative of the House of Sleat and of the last
Lords of the Isles—Lord MacDonald of Sleat.
In view of what has been said of ancient Celtic law and custom and of Lord
Lyon's decision, quoted above, it is difficult to avoid the conclusion that Lord
MacDonald of Sleat, though he comes of a younger branch of a younger branch,
is the true MacDonald of the Isles and head of all Clan Donald.

Dear Father MacDonell,
received
I just^e copy of the Father Stanley letter from the
Sydney Post^-Record, in fact, they sent me the letter as
it was printed.  I am sure that a small paragraph was
not sent to the Post-Record, comparing the present claims
of Lord MacDonald to those of the King to the throne of
England. However, that is unimportant.
I was very careful to copy the letter as exactly as
it appeared in the paper. I sum sure that Father Stanley
must have named John, married to Amie MacRuari, 2nd Lord
and not as 7th.  Also, the MacDonald's in the heading is
misspelled, or at least, the apostrophe is in the wrong
place or should not be there at all.
However, I think that if you wrote to the Post-Record
or preferably to the Casket, you may quote correctly if you
quote from the letter as you have it.here.
Let's see you go after these 'claimants' and establish
the true lineage back to real Chief and the real Lord MacDonald.

Dear Father MacDonell,
I am enclosing copies of the letters written so many
years ago from Bohuntin together with a sketch of how I am
tied up with this crowd.    It seems to me that there must be
some of these people quite alive in Loehaber yet who would
at least remember seme of them and get their connection
with the main branches.    Perhaps not but  it is worth trying.
By the way,  I wish that you would please give me an
account on paper of Father John "Mor" MacDonald's first
visit to Brae-Lochaber.    I remember your telling roe the
incident but would like to get it in such way as to appear
eventually in print.
I hear that your curate  is leaving the country.    That
is the latest around here.
Sincerely in Xto,,

Dear Cousin,
:.-.':■
I have received your very welcome and esteemed letter,    It affords all
of us the greatest pleasure to obtain such information regarding yourself and other
relations.    We are perfectly acquainted with the names of all the prties named
in your letter from my father continually speaking of them.    I understand that he
was in constant correspondence with your family during your mother's lifetime
but that after her death he could get no answer to his inquiries so that we had no
info una tion whatever since then.
I now proceed to give you all intelligence concerning our family and other
relations,    5'y father died three years ago.    My mother is still alive, our family
consisted of 4 sons and 4 daughters, all of whom with the exception of my eldest
brother are yet alive,  one of my sisters is named Jessie for your mother, another
Sarah for your grandmother.    1 have a brother named Ranald for the same man as
yourself and so on for the rest of our relations - none of our uncles or aunts
is alive.    There are a  few of their children in Badenoch and they are truly
clannish and loyal.    I will communicate the contents of your letter to them and
you will get every information respecting them in my next letter.
ivy dear Cousin, I am sorry to inform you that I have been an invalid for the
last two years, before then, I was Camekeeper in the Glen but now my health is so
much broken down that I am fi* for nothing and probably have no long time to live.
I was the youngest of the family with the exception of one girl.    Ranald the
elder brother takes charge of the place and family.    Angus the other broths r is
a very smart active lad- He too was sometime Gamekeeper but can do anything.
He mixed with more company and is consequently more active than most of the  young
lads here.    He would have no objection to go to push his fortune in your colony
should you offer encouragement.
From your carte visit® you yourself appear to be a well formed strong man;
in the course of time you can have our portraits but in the meantime we are situated so far from any town or city that we cannot get them drawn.    This is a poor
donothing country where it is$ hard to earn a livelihood and where none can make
a fortune.    I will be most happy to hold a regular and punctual correspondence
with you for we all here are full of the  old clannish Highlaai nature who feel
much more interest in all our relations than people in California have any idea
of.    This being my first letter I do not intend to make long till we become
better acquainted.    Antfc information you require about friends here I will be most
willing to communicated   Inform your brother that you have found us out.    There
is an aunt of your by the father's side in this neighbourhood.    She and her
family are well.    I will let her know of your letter and in my next you will
hear what she wishes to say to you.
You may rest assured of our warmest affection for you and I trust that you
will not fail again to write in course of mail and youjfety depend upon my answer
in return.        I am, dear cousin, yours most truly,
David MacDonald.

My dear Cousin,
vour kind and very welcome letter of the 2nd April came to hand in due
time and you may rest assured that no intelligence could afford as more satisfaction than to hear of your welfare.    Before going further on, I must give you
the sad news of my poor Brother David's death, he departed this life after a long
illness,  on the 7th of January last.    His complaint was caused at first through
heat and cold; we were at a great deal of expenses towards him so that we are very
deep in debt and you may know that it will keep us down for sometime  to come.
W« tried all the doctors we could and even the very best of them of whom we had
an account of in the country,  so you may know that it must have been very es-
pensive.    However, it affords me much pleasure to hear that some of ray relations
are in better circumstances.    I am happy to let you know that we are all in good
health at present.    The reason you did not get an answer sooner is that both
my brother and myself were away from home for the last month.    I only came home
last week ^nd I don't intend to go from home any more during summer.    Regarding
your aunt Maiy I saw her the othr r day coming home, and both herself and family
are well.    The number of tamily she has are 4 sons and 4 daughters.    One of her
daughters is married,    leither herself nor family are Catholic.    They are all
members of the Free Kirk or Revivalists.    Our uncle Allan left two daughters,
one of them is married and none of our aunts on your mother side are alive.    They
all died on the same year with your own mother.    As for people from this country
there I do not know much about them;  only a cousin of us who went to some part
there some years since ; His name was Alex Robertson; h® is a son of your aunt
Sarah on your mother sideM    fa never heard of him since he left.    He was a
Schoolmaster in a place in this neighbourhood before he left.    We have a
share of a farm here, we took a share of a new farm few years ago and that made
us more destitute of cash at present, we have only 5 heads of cattle, 1 horse
adn upwards of on® hundred of sheep.    We keep sore sheep as they are ths   only
thing that pays in this country.    I have no news of any importance to i'nfona
you of.    I write to your brother Banald by this mail.    All the rest of the family
join me in kind love to you.    Please write me on receipt of this as nothing
on the world will give me such pleasure as to hear from my relatl ons often,
I remain, my dear cousin,
Yours very affectionately,
Ranald MacDonald.
PS.    There is another lad who left this place some years since.    He is a native
of Strathglass.    He is a nephew of Mr. Forbes, the priest we have in the Braes
of Lochaber here;  his name Is Donald Forbes,  perhaps you might know him.

My Dear Cousin,
I am sure that you will consider it high time for me to take my pen to
inform you that I am alive and better than that that I and the rest of the fasxily
are in the enjoyment of good health hoping and wishing to find you and yours the
I have lately written Ranald your brother to New Zealand when 1 receive
his answer, I will not fail to let you know.    Most of the news of this country
with soma of the people of which you have any acquaintance can be of little or
no interest to you so I shall confine --y inf ormation to my own affairs and our
immediate relations,    I am still a Bachelor and likely to remain so - Catherine
my oldest sister keeps the house for me,    Angus my Brother is generally employed
with English sportsmen having shootings in this district.    At other times he
lives with myself.    Sarah ray next sister Is House Keeper for a priest In
Alexandria near Dumbarton and Janet and Mary the two others are with Mir. Kennedy
where I formerly yoa.
I may now tell you dear Cousin of my prospects here.    This farm of ours
is a very large one and there are a great number of tenants concerned in it.
Till now the lots were of unequal size some beii^§ twice,   sane three times and
some  four times as large as the others.    Mine was ©he of the middle size.
At last Martinmas we got a renewal of our lease for another nineteen years.
All the lots are to be made equal and at the term of Tfhitsunday were whose
lots are to be enlarged must take delivery of and pay for the additional share
of the  stoek,  sheep and cattle that falls to us.      You say well understand,
Dear Cousin, that it will he hard enough on me to meet that demand and I just
take the liberty of asking sane assistance from you for the purpose if it  is at
all convenient for you.    The least remittance would be of much importance as
it would render me comparatively independent for the rest of my life and when
this pressure is safely over, you nay depend upon being punctually paid and
that very thankfully 	
I have been in Fort William the o^her day and saw your aunt Mrs. Cameron.
She and all the family are quite well.    I will defer sending you more news
till I will be able to acquaint you how matters will turn out,
I remain, dear Cousin,
Yours affectionately,
Ranald MacDonald. COPT

Ify Dear cousin,
I sit down to infoxm you a short note.    As am sorry that you never answer
since my Uncle died but I hope you are all alive yet.    Dear Cousin, I have to
tell you that one of my aunts is living yet and she is a bedfast for nine years
and I understand by old people's talk that she is called by your mother's name,
Jannet MacDonald,    Dear Cousin,  If you never got my letter likely you don't
know whi&h way 1 am left here but I  shall let you know again.
Dear Cousin I let you know my uncle left at me everything that belonged to
him out and inside but there was some arrears left on the place which I have
to settle before I could get anything to ray hand.    But I have got fair trices
this year for all what we have as w© clear the farm's rent at the last  term
which we could not manage last three yeers.    But the only thing that is trouble
me at the meantime is the Doctor's account for my uncle's attendance.    Now
dear cousin,  I would be very much obliged if you could help me a little in
this matter.
Dear Cousin I have to let you kfcow that I have changed my name as you
called me now {Margaret Kennedy)    I am not going to mention much about him just
now but he is from a good Catholic Country called Moidart, Invernessshire.
Dear Cousin I will send with this letter a newspaper which you will see all the
Information.    I let you know that train is now running through the few |oad a
distance of two miles to our place which I hope to meet you and Mrs. MacDonald
at Roybridge.next summer If both of us would be spared.
Now I would be waiting for your reply to let mgfoear about you and Mrs.
I*cDonald and all the family.    I must close with Mind regards to you all and
my hasband joins me the same.
