News in the papers today that a number of Scottish Nationalists have been arrested for “conspiring against the United Kingdom.” I am anxious about Meg [MacDougall].

Margaret MacDougall was the Acting Curator of Inverness Museum during the war and a supporter of the Scottish Nationalist cause. EJR had met her whilst attending museum training courses in the 1930s.
