Letter from John McLeod to Parish Council

Letter from John McLeod to Parish Council. He acknowledges receipt of cheque for twenty pounds. This seems to be for the arrangement of transport for him.

John McLeod states that the petition by Jessie McDonald for aid is full of lies. He says that she and her son are able-bodied and quite able to support themselves. Her son recently had a job trapping rabbits.

He says that the people who have signed in support of her petition are ready to sign anything provided it costs them nothing.
