Letter from Anne Baillie, Edinburgh to Isabella Baillie, Inverness, 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 15 January, 1832. It is a letter from Anne Baillie in Edinburgh to her mother in Inverness. In it, Anne talks about her mother's serious illness. She goes on to mention that George Baillie Leys is coming to Britain but will return to India if he makes an 'independant fortune'.

Anne also sends a note to 'Maggie' on the back of the letter to her mother. In it she mentions her mother's health and the recent outbreak of cholera and typhus in Edinburgh
