STATEMENT by KENNETH MACKENZIE, Crofter, Scoraig
I regret that, in consequence of misunderstanding the purport of the question put to me by the Royal Commissioners, when giving evidence before them at Ullapool on the 30th of July last, I did there and then erroneously state that the proprietor had never given any assistance to the crofters here in building their houses, or in making any other improvements.
Sincerely indulging the hope that it is not yet too late to retract that misstatement, I beg to take this opportunity of declaring that the present proprietor of the estate of Dundonnell, as well as his immediate predecessors, had not only given timber free of any charge whatever for the building of their tenants houses, and the repairing and constructing of their boats, & c , but have also granted various sums of money for the same benevolent purpose.
X KENNETH MACKENZIE, Lots of Scoraig.
Archibald M'Niven, witness
John M'lver, do.
Duncan M'Gregor, do.
