Letter from John Wilson, Inverness to Miss Baillie, page 2

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 document is dated 3 September 1852. It is a letter from John Wilson of Inverness to Miss Baillie. It refers to a recent complaint Miss Baillie has been suffering. Mr Wilson suggests her complaint has been caused by 'indulgence in vegetables' and he advises treatment which includes castor oil, laudanum, and arrowroot
