Editor's Notes An interesting piece of Clan Chattan history, under the leadership of MacKintosh.  This bond, like many similar documents, was not successful in calming the ongoing Cameron-Mackintosh feud.  Their differences would finally be settled the following year, following the famous Standoff at the Fords of Arkaig.
