Maria Moffat

A Young Woman, rather of a genteel appearance, disordered in her reason, came to Peterhead some weeks ago.  She calls herself MARIA MOFFAT; speaks English and Gaelic; says that her step-father's name is NEIL MATHESON; and that she thinks she left home with a fever.  It is earnestly requested that this you woman's relatives will, if this should come to their knowledge, give orders for having her removed, and taken care of.

Peterhead, 5th July, 1813.
