Petition presented by Murdoch MacKenzie: retraction

This undated note relates to a petition presented by Mr Murdoch MacKenzie, minister and Moderator of the Kirk Session of Inverness in which four servants from a household in Little Geddes, in the county of Nairn, are accused of abandoning a baby at the house of Phineas Mackintosh, merchant and Dean of Guild in Inverness.

In a note apparently written in his own hand, the minister who brought the petition retracts his charge against two of the accused, Alexander Gavin and Ann MacGlashan, allowing them to be set free
