Letter from Rev Alex Clark, Inverness to Miss Baillie, Dunain, page 3

The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.



A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.



This particular document is dated 14 April,1840. It is from the Reverend Alex Clark to Miss Baillie of Dunean and concerns the building of the West Church in Inverness. The trustees of Mr Duff have paid £20 towards the erection of the new church and they have reserved a pew in the gallery. There have also been numerous applications for seating in the new church from various other families. The Reverend Clark is asking Miss Baillie to consider the Baillie family's seating arrangements
