Tha an earrann a leanas bho 'Gloomy Memories in the Highlands of Scotland', a chaidh a sgrìohbadh le Dòmhnall MacLeòid aig àm nam Fuadaichean. Nochd 'Gloomy Memories' an toiseach mar shreath de litrichean ann am pàipear-naidheachd ann an Dùn Èideann, 'The Edinburgh Weekly Chronicle'. Tha an earrann seo air a leughadh le DJ Mac an t-Saoir.

'I was present at the pulling down and burning of the house of William Chisholm ... in which was lying his wife's mother, an old bed-ridden woman of near 100 years of age ... I informed the persons about to set fire to the house of this circumstance and prevailed on them to wait till Mr Sellar came. On his arrival I told him of the poor old woman ... He replied, 'Damn her, the old witch, she has lived too long; let her burn.' Fire was immediately set to the house and the blankets in which she was carried were in flames before she could be got out. ... [Her] daughter arrived while the house was on fire and assisted the neighbours in removing her mother out of the flames and smoke, presenting a picture of horror which I shall never forget, but cannot attempt to describe. She died within five days.'

Chaidh an earrann chlaistinn seo a dhèanamh airson pac stòrais nan sgoiltean, 'Gàidheil air Imrich,' a rinn Am Baile airson Tilleadh Dhachaigh 2009.
