Mr and Mrs William D. Macleod from Pittsfield, Mass., are spending a holiday in their home town. 
Mr Macleod is the son of Mr William Macleod, Dalhousie Street, and Mrs Macleod was formerly Miss Jessie MacDonald of Montrose Street. Her brother is Mr George MacDonald, Newington House. 
It is the first time that brother and sister had met in 34 years. Mr MacDonald went to India in 1929. He retired in 1947 and he and his family came to live in Brechin.

August visitors in Glenesk include Sir Denis Truscott, former Lord mayor of London and lady Truscott, who have been regular visitors to the Glen since 1947.

A door to door collection in Careston realised £8 12s 6d for the Red Cross.
