given and a remark
made "To obviate as
far as possible the
mistakes arising in the
postal department from
the similarity of the names
Inverary and Inverury
this name has recently
been changed to Inverurie
As it is very questionable
whether this name should
have been altered without
a more sufficient reason
than has been given,
Inverary being about 120
miles distant, and in
the County of Argyle.
Will you be pleased
to say what you wish
to have done in this
R.M. Parsons
Captain R. E. [Royal Engineers]

Capt. [Captain] Parsons
I have to
have the name
altered to Inverurie
to be consistent with
the Parish Name .......
