Dear Sir,
I'm told you require
a note from me about
the engraving you have
to dispose of. I recognized it
at once in your shop as my
father Col Burnses hand
writing. Mr Bogie who lived
at Terraughtie with John
Maxwell was a beloved friend
of my Grandmother Burns,
The Poet's widow.
I remain
Yours truly
S (Burns) Hutchinson
A copy of a hand tinted engraving is held by Ancient Light No. 88, in Delta, BC.
