Fragment of a story about Ulva, a bull and courting, August 1886

 Item
Identifier: Coll-97/CW122/49
Scope and Contents Fragment of a story which tells how Ulva [probably MacQuarrie or Macquarie] often swam to Innis [Inch Keneth] to see a girl and on one occasion he found a bull stranded on a rock, so he pushed it back into the water. The part of the story which deals with the girl's reaction is in poor handwriting making it difficult to understand but it would appear to relate to her relationship with MacQuarrie.
