Altar boy for Father MacPherson

“[I] grew up in Port Hood, Inverness County, and served as an Altar Boy on many occasions for Father Donald MacPherson… Your stories about Father Donald were most enjoyed. He was certainly down on the liquor and his High Masses could last up to 2 1/2 hours. He used to write letters for illiterate parishioners and one of them named Donald “Brown Hughie” always insisted that he write on the bottom “Please excuse the bad writing.”
