Letter to Inspector from General Board of Lunacy

Letter from General Board of Lunacy for Scotland to Inspector of Poor, Farr.

This letter is regarding Margaret Campbell who had travelled with her mother to Wick from Farr to work in a fishing station.

The letter informs the inspector that next year it would be better and safer if Margaret Campbell stayed with her married sister because "there are sexual risks in the case of this girl which make Wick an unsuitable place for her."
