The flag day in aid of King George’s Fund for Sailors realised £54 15s 6d, Mr A S Third, who organised the collection at the National Commercial Bank, would like to thank the collectors and the public for their response.

Doctor W J B Livingston, from Hampton, Virgina, who as exchanged pulpits for the summer with the Rev. Dr Arthur McNaughtan, was not long in finding out what a friendly place Brechin can be. He and his wife and family arrive in Brechin at the end of last week and right away there was a gathering to welcome them. The Social on Monday evening was very much a family party with the American family made to feel very much at home. With Mr J P Gellatly, the session clerk, in the chair, there could not be any stiffness about.
