Notes from the book John Macfie and his family , " Dr Laurie seems to have been a rather unorthodox practitioner, and had been dubbed "Bob Sawyer" by the wits of Greenock, partly because he favoured Sawyer's ointment, but more especially because at his dispensary he announced " Advice given fratis to the poor" which, it was thought, was very much the Bob Sawyer fashion."

     Obituary   from the Scottish Temperance League journal  Oct 1891
Mrs Claud Macfie,Gogarburn

It is with much regret we intimate the death of Mrs Macfie, wife of Claud Macfie, of Gogarburn, Midlothian. Which occurred on the 16th instant. Mrs Macfie had been ailing for some time, but was thought to be recovering, and no danger was apprehended until the day on which she died. So recently as the 4th of this month, she had remitted to the secretary of the League Mr Macfie�s annual subscription and her own, and payment for the Advisers and other periodicals which her husband and herself sent to a number of schools in different parts of Scotland for free distribution among the scholars. The deceased lady was of exceedingly amiable disposition, distinguished by an inborn courtesy and sensitive consideration for all around her, and was thus much loved by a large circle of  friends, who will deeply mourn her departure. Endowed wit ha deeply sympathetic nature , and inspired with the spirit of Him who went about doing good, Mrs Macfie was profoundly interested in all philanthropic and Christian agencies which seek to promote the well being of the community. In various associations in and around Edinburgh she was a highly-valued and zealous worker, and gave liberally of her means for their support. Many among the poor in her own immediate neighbourhood will sadly miss her kindly presence and sympathising words, which enhanced the value of the benefactions she was ever ready cheerfully to bestow. Mrs Macfie was early identified with the temperance movement.

For about forty years she was a warmly-attached member of the Scottish Temperance League and a most generous subscriber to its funds. By various methods and in a most liberal spirit, she sought to advance the total abstinence cause. The great reform that Mr. And Mrs. Macfie originated in the island of  Islay affords a striking illustration of meritorious and successful work.

For about five years, from 1857 to 1861, Mr and Mrs Macfie resided in Islay House, which became the centre of a most remarkable total abstinence movement, which extended over the entire island, and  embraced a large proportion of its inhabitants. Mr. And Mrs. Macfie engaged agents of the Scottish Temperance League who addressed large meeting in the different localities with wonderful effect. Clergymen, teachers, farmers, and other came forward and took the pledge, total abstinence societies were formed, the children marched in procession from the schools to the place  of meeting , and large additions were made night after night to the ranks of abstainers. The temperance advocates were hospitably entertained by Mr. And Mrs. Macfie at Islay House and were  conveyed by them to the different villages and clachans to address the people on, to them, the novel doctrine of abstinence from alcoholic liquors.

The Beneficent work thus initiated by Mr. And Mrs. Macfie in those bygone years took firm root and bears visible fruit to this day, there being many staunch and zealous temperance reformers in the island.
The efforts of Mr and Mrs Macfie for the good of the inhabitants were not restricted to the promotion  of the abstinence cause. The also manifested  the liveliest interest in the schools in Islay, and monthly supplies of the Adviser and other temperance publications were and are still sent for free distribution among the children. The older inhabitants cherish grateful memories of the considerate kindness of Mrs Macfie during the years of her sojourn among them. Many a public cause in Scotland and elsewhere will suffer by her death, and in private circles more especially, she will be sorrowfully missed.

Mrs Macfie was a sister of Mr Alexander Allan, of the Allan Line, and the fact that Mr and Mrs Allan are now abroad imparts a peculiar feeling of sadness to the melancholy event. With Mr Macfie and the wide circle of relatives we deeply sympathise in the sore bereavement they have sustained in the death of one so much esteemed and loved.
