    being attracted to the Bruce or the Wallace or "Davie Lindsay"
    for any other reason than
    the comfortable history of stalwart doings against Englishmen and priests




    the comfortable history of stalwart doings against Englishmen and priests

    the comfortable history of stalwart doings against Englishmen and priests

    the comfortable history of stalwart doings against Englishmen and priests


    A Y E


    Sincerely, Indeed,
    COLUMBA KNOX

    He it is who has opened to foreigners
    the grand and characteristic beauties of our countrie.

    and illustrious patriots have obtained a fame no longer
    confined to the boundaries of a remote and
    comparativelie obscure countrie.'"
