Subject: DG Allen d'Aldecombe Lumsden of Cushnie
I refer to your entry for the above.

I would advise you that it is incorrect in that you refer to Mr Lumsden as the Baron of Cushnie Lumsden.

Mr Lumsden ceased to be Baron on 22 January 2004 when I acquired title to the baronial lands.

This is recorded in the Register of Sassines on 10 March 2004.

I have also been awarded letters patent by the Lord Lyon as Baron of Cushnie Lumsden - dated 27 April 2004.

I should therefore be grateful if you would amend the entry in your publication.

Thanking you in anticipation

Yours faithfully

AT Robertson
Baron of Cushnie Lumsden
