Mr George Scott was listed as the corresponding brother for this assembly in Scotland in the 1882 address list in the History Section.
Hi Stewart, Thanks for your comment. Agree completely that many cases of discipline, in the Brethren, or elsewhere are Biblically necessary. However the Brethren have long had a history of describing people as "wicked persons" in this manner, not for any moral matter, but merely breaking some ecclesiastical rule, such as fellowshipping with other Christians. This went on long before the 1960s, and although one cannot be certain, to me the letter reads in a way to suggest it was most likely this, rather than anything which would commend itself to wider judgement.
