Joseph Fyfe, Gilcomston


Whereas on the night of Friday the 31st day of May last, some evil disposed person or persons entered the Byre of JOSEPH FYFE, near GILCOMSTON, and wickedly cut a COW, his property, in several places, apparently with a view of killing her; but, having failed in this, they barbarously cut off her tail, leaving it in the byre - a Reward of TWO GUINEAS is hereby offered by James Spalding, advocate, Aberdeen, Procurator Fiscal of the Sheriff Court, for such information as shall lead to the discovery and conviction of the person or persons guilty of the above cruel and malicious offence.
