This is the text of an undated cutting from the Inverness Courier in a volume of historical pamphlets collected by James Maidment (Vol.1, p.74) The volume forms part of the reference collection at Inverness Library.

The extract is from a letter written by Margaret McLeod of Melbourne, Australia, to her brother and sister back home in Skye.

The extract is read by Clare Maclean.

'Dh'fhuiling am balach beag againn gu mòr mus do bhàsaich e. Iain Mac Fhionghainn bochd a dh'fhalbh à Ròdhag, chaill e a theaghlach uile; bhàsaich an aon duine a bha beò nuair a thàinig sinn air tìr, an t-seachdain sa chaidh.'

The English reads:

'Our dear little boy suffered a great deal before he died. Poor John MacKinnon, that left Roag, lost all his family; the only one that was living after coming on shore died last week.'

This audio was produced for the schools' resource package, 'Highlanders on the Move', Am Baile's contribution to Homecoming Scotland 2009.
