§ MR. FRASER-MACKINTOSH
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether there has been a correspondence between Sir John William Powlett Campbell Orde, Baronet, proprietor of the large and important island of North Uist, and the Heads of the Criminal Authorities in Scotland, regarding Mr. Thomas Wilson, solicitor in Lochmaddy; whether the correspondence referred to the refusal of Mr. Wilson to act as law agent for Sir John Orde, in carrying out certain evictions which Mr. Wilson deemed to be unjust; and if he will be good enough to state the import of the correspondence, or lay a copy upon the Table?
§ MR. J. P. B. ROBERTSON
I can find no trace of any such correspondence as is alluded to. I think it right to add that assuming such a correspondence had taken place, it would entirely depend on the subject matter, whether I should be able either to state the import or lay a copy of it on the Table.
