Summary - An old woman from Baleshare got better when a piper played for her.

Doctors had no cure for an old woman from Baleshare who was ill. Her husband sent for a piper to play a tune for her. She asked him to play 'Cìobairean Taobh Loch Obha' with six variations. The old man and his sons specified other tunes for him to play. When the doctor came the next morning, the old woman was eating a plate of porridge.
