In December, 2011 a wooden writing box/slope was found in the canal, floating in water at Dochgarroch, by Inverness, and handed in as found property to Burnett Road Police Station, Inverness.
Inside the box are letters addressed to Miss S R Paterson, “Bidston”, Ross Avenue, Inverness, postmarked Edinburgh, 19th August, 1934. There are a number of love letters and wedding invitations of great sentimental value inside the box and surprisingly, they are very well preserved for having been in the water.
Efforts by the Lost/Found Property Department in Burnett Road, Inverness have failed to trace or identify an owner for the box and contents.
Does anybody have any knowledge of the lady or the address, who can assist with reuniting the box and letters with her or any family members.
