Menie Buchanan


Boswell mentions sitting in a box in the theatre of Edinburgh with Buchanan on November 10, 1762. He writes that "we were glad to see each other again". She doesn't seem to appear anywhere else in his journals.

She may be the Menie Buchanan who was listed as a female member of the Glasgow Hodge Podge Club from which she was stricken for being guilty of matrimony in 1763.1
