Re: Sinclairs by mistake?

Dear Donald:
Migod you do blether on:" perhaps you remember me?....etc etc."   How could
I ever forget the man who went line for line with me at the Hotel in Lybster
with Burns' Address to a Haggis?  How could I ever forget the man who (like
me) likes to stay to the end to see how it turns out?  How could I ever
forget the man with the eternal twinkle in the 'ee"  Lovely to hear from you
good and dear man!
Won't be in Scotland in August as I just got back. I had been in touch with
both Niven and Malcolm and I knew about the Norwegians but couldn't change
my plans that had me arriving on the 16th of April.  I went over mainly for
a piping conference but I of course went to Rosslyn and then went up to
Caithness and stayed with Lady Margaret.  John was there and doing some
serious politicking for the Liberal-Democrats and I believe his party was
elected for Caithness and  Sutherland but John was helping another man to
get elected for the Scottish Parliament and was not eager for the seat
himself.  He may have other ambitions for another Parliament (the one south
of the Tweed).  His family have had a long line of Liberal Parliamentarians
going all the way back to Sir John himself.
I'll send on a couple of back issues of our newsletter "Rosslyn O' Rosslyn"
for your edification and you'll only be able to buy me a snort if I don't
get you one first!
My very best to you and Mary                        Yours Aye,
