Letter from Mr C Waterston, Caledonian Bank to Miss Baillie of Dunain, 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 24 July 1856. It is a letter from Mr C Waterston of the Caledonian Bank in Inverness, to Miss Baillie of Dunain House. In it Mr Waterston asks whether Miss Baillie will allow the Dunain front pew at the High Church to be occupied by a part of the large family of Mr Bethune. Mr Bethune is a friend of Mr Waterston. He is the son of a 'Scotch clergyman' and has recently arrived from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania)
