Scope and Contents

Story about Rev. John MacAulay, minister of South Uist and later Lismore [Uibhist a Deas and Lios Mòr]. The story tells of his appointment to the parish of South Uist over a candidate preferred by both the people and Clanranald and of how he was disliked by his parishoners. He left South Uist to be minister on Lismore but there he was equally disliked by parishioners and on his final Sunday there said that he would be prepared to stay on if any two parishioners stood up to show their support. No one stood up and MacAulay left the parish. He was replaced by Rev. Donald MacNicol 'a man who is still honoured in Lis[more]'.
