Barrie's inscription to Michael inside a book on fishing, "In memory of his first sea trout". Scourie, August 3rd, 1911.

Barrie wrote to a friend, "Michael has caught a salmon & nearly a hundred sea-trout. His first sea-trout had a tragic history. It weighed 2½ lbs & he went to bed with it on a chair by his side. Next day it was sent to England to be stuffed & arrived on Bank Holiday. The shop was closed so it was taken to the gardener's cottage of one of the firm. The gardener's wife thought it was a gift from some anonymous friend and ate it. I didn't dare tell Michael until he got the salmon."
