Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o 'Letter from Reachfar' le Seonag Dhonnchaidh, foillsichte ann an 1975. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le sgoilear o Acadamaidh na Cananaich.

'After my first visit to my publishers in January 1959, I took the night train to Inverness where I was to be met by my Uncle George and his friend Hugh, the owner of the local garage. When the train puffed about five hours late into Inverness Station backwards, as the old steam trains always did, any warm sense of homecoming that I might have had was totally dispersed for it was freezing cold, the platform covered in frozen snow and large flakes of snow were still falling. By the time my luggage had been piled into the car and we were driving towards the outskirts of the town, my blood, after ten years in the tropics, seemed to be frozen in my veins and my teeth could not chatter because the joints of my jaws were rigid.'

Rugadh Ealasaid Seonag Chamshroin an 10mh Màirt 1910 ann an Renton, Siorrachd Dhùin Bhreatainn, nighean chonstabail poileis, Donnchadh Camshron. 'S e Seonaidh (Seasaidh) Sandison a bh' air a màthair. O ainmean a dithis phàrant chuir i ri chèile a dà far-ainm sgrìobhaidh, Seonag Dhonnchaidh agus Seònaid Sandison.

Chaidh a' chuid a bu mhotha de a leanabachd a chur seachad air croit a seanpharantan, 'The Colony' (an 'Reachfar' na nobhailean), air an Eilean Dubh. Chaidh i gu Oilthigh Ghlaschu agus rinn i obair ann an Aonad Fiosrachaidh Dhealbhan-camara san Dàrna Cogadh. Thàinig beatha shocair sa Charibìan gu deireadh nuair a bhàsaich an duine aice, agus aig aois 47, thàinig oirre sgrìobhadh ach am pàigheadh i na cunntasan meadaigeach aige agus airson a beò-shlaint'.

Chaidh a' chiad nobhail aig Seonag, 'My friend Muriel', fhoillseachadh ann an 1959, agus lean iomadh nobhail eile, nam measg ochd-deug gu lèir san t-sreath 'My friend'. Sgrìobh i cuideachd do chlainn san t-sreath na 'Camerons', agus, aig fìor-deireadh a beatha, cho-obraich i còmhla ri tè nan dealbhan, Màiri Hedderwick air 'Herself and Janet Reachfar' agus 'Janet Reachfar and the Kelpie'. Chaidh Màiri Hedderwick air adhart a' sgrìobhadh dhi-fhèin air Katie Morag.

Bhàsaich Seonag Dhonnchaidh am 20mh Dàmhair 1976 agus tha i air a tìodhlacadh ann an cladh Chille Mhìcheil air an Eilean Dubh.

Thèid ath-dheasachadh ùr de 'My Friends the Miss Boyds' a chur air bhog am bliadhna as t-samhradh (2010) agus bidh sin a' co-thachairt leis an t-sùbhachas a thathar a' cur air dòigh air an Eilean Dubh airson Cuimhneachan Jane Duncan nan ceud bliadhna a chomharrachadh.
