Letter from Hugh McLeod to Parochial Board

This is a letter from Hugh McLeod requesting aid for looking after his sister. She is unable to work or support herself in any way. She currently receives 2/- per month which does not support her.

To corroborate these facts Mr Mackay is willing to enlist the aid of the local elders and neighbours. He begs that her case be brought before the parochial board for application of additional annuity.
