Story about [John] MacAulay, minister, Lismore, August 1883

 Item
Identifier: Coll-97/CW120/35
Scope and Contents Story probably collected from Christina Campbell née Macintyre, Lios Mòr/Lismore Earra, Ghàidheal/Argyllshire, about [John MacAulay], minister on Lismore [Lios Mòr], that he did not tell his congregation that he was leaving until the last Sunday saying that if three men rose and asked him to stay he would. One elder responded with 'Leigidh sinn an t-eurbal leis a chraicionn' [We'll leave the tail with the skin].
