Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o chaibideil nine de fèin-eachdraidh Ealasaid Ghrannd o Rata Mhurchais 'Memoirs of a Highland Lady', foillsichte an toiseach an 1897. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le Sue Skelton.

'A walk to the Croft led us quite in another direction. We generally went to the White Gate, and through the new garden on to the Milltown muir past Peter the Pensioner's wooden house, and then climbing over the wooden railing wandered on among the birch woods till we reached the gate at the Lochan Mor; that passed, we got into the fir wood, refreshed ourselves in the proper season with blackberries and cranberries, then climbing another fence re-entered the birch wood, in the midst of which nestled the two cottages called the Croft. The houses were not adjoining; the upper one connected with the farm offices was the family dwelling, the lower and newer one at a little distance was for strangers. Old Mrs. Cameron, who was by this time nearly blind, sat beside the fire in a bonnet and shawl as if ready for walking, talking little, but sighing a great deal. Miss Mary bustled about in her managing way as kind as her nature would let her be; there was little fear of any one getting a Saturday's kebbock at the Croft! A little honey with a barley scone was the extent of Miss Mary's hospitality. They had always a good fire and a kind welcome for the Laird's children.'

Rugadh Ealasaid Ghrannd o Ràta Mhurchais ann an Dùn Èideann an 7mh Cèitein 1797, an leanabh a b' aosta den choignear chloinne aig Sir Peadar Grannd, uachdaran Ràta Mhurchais. Chuir i seachad a' chuid a bu mhotha de a h-òige air oighreachd an teaghlaich agus ann an Lunnainn, a' dol a-steach gu cearcall sòisealta Dhùn Èidinn ann an 1814. Thill an teaghlach a Ràta Mhurchais ann an 1820 agus bho mun cuairt air 1820 sgrìobh Ealasaid artaigilean agus sgeulachdan do dhiofar iris gus airgead a chur ri teachd-a-steach an teaghlaich.

Ann an 1827 ghluais an teaghlach gu Bombay far an do choinnich Ealasaid ris an duine a phòsadh i, an Còirneal Eanraig Mac a' Ghobhainn. Phòs iad agus thill iad a dh'Èirinn a' bhliadhna às dèidh siud, gus am fuiricheadh iad air an oighreachd aig a' chòirneal ann an cunntaidh Wicklow. Chùm Ealasaid oirre a' cosnadh airgid le bhith a' sgrìobhadh, agus ag àrach aig an aon àm a triùir chloinne, Sìne, Anna agus Iain. Eadar 1845 is 1854 sgrìobh i cuimhneachan prìobhaideach de na bliadhnaichean aice ann an Alba. Thàinig seo gu bhith a h-obair as ainmeil - 'Memoirs of a Highland Lady' - air fhoillseachadh agus air a ghearradh sìos le nighean a piuthar agus air a chlo-bhualadh an toiseach ann an1897.

Am measg a sgrìobhaidhean eile a chaidh foillseachadh às dèidh a bàis tha 'The Irish Journals of Elizabeth Smith, 1840-1850' (1980), 'The Highland Lady in Ireland' (1991), agus 'A Highland Lady in France' (1996). Bhàsaich an Leadaidh Grannd an 16 Samhain 1885 aig a dachaigh ann an cunntaidh Wicklow.
