December, 1883 - December 1883

Andrew MacAngus, aged 12, son of David MacAngus, Balintore, pleaded guilty to ‘part of a charge’ of breaking, with stones, two panes of glass of an unoccupied house in Balintore belonging to William Miller of Inverness, also five panes of the same house on another day. The accused said the panes had been broken before by William Skinner’s sling, but Skinner, who was in court, shouted ‘it wasn’t my sling’. The accused, whose parents were in court, was dismissed with an admonition.
