TRANSCRIBER'S NOTES:

VARIANT SPELLINGS Page vi: John Mackay is of Rockfield (p. vi); and Rockfields (p. 16 and index, under Mackay). Amended Rockfield to Rockfields.

Page vi.: Variant spelling of Scourie and Scowrie retained, however, as the author could well have spelled it Scowrie (though online historical sources suggest Hugh Mackay was born at Scourie).

Page 133: Hyslop has been in all other instances spelt Hislop; corrected.

Page 159: "bloodly Clavers" matches book: retained.

Variant spelling of doggerel/doggrel (one instance of each) retained.

VARIANT CAPITALISATIONS Inconsistent capitalisation of Council-Board and Council-board (one instance of each) retained.

Capitalisation of Churchman (p. 9) and Legislature (p. 9) retained

The Killing Time variously capitalised as killing-time, Killing-time, Killing-Time and Killing Time (one of each). Two of these are enclosed in quote marks and one is in the index. Retained.

Popery and popery/popish and Popish variant capitalisations retained (read properly in context).

VARIANT SPELLINGS IN QUOTED LETTERS While the author notes that Claverhouse could not spell correctly (for example p. 6), the only misspellings that appear in the reproduced letters are proper names: there are no other spelling errors. It would appear that the transcriber was correcting the common English without correcting the proper names. Subsequently the following misspelled proper names have been corrected:

Page 108: Mauchlin corrected to Mauchline.

Page 138: Sanquar corrected to Sanquhar (spelt correctly in a previous letter, p. 108).

Page 188: Variant spelling of Locheil, elsewhere Lochiel, corrected. In the same letter there is a reference to Queenberry (otherwise Queensberry), ditto corrected.

Page 190: Kircudbright corrected to Kirkcudbright (spelt correctly in at least 3 previous letters, see pp. 54, 93 and 94).

HYPHENS One instance of each headquarters, head-quarters and one split over the end of a line. Settled on headquarters as the more common spelling.

PUNCTUATION Page 69: "; amended to ;", which is the standard punctuation arrangement in the book.

Page 188: "strangely, For" amended to "strangely. For".

Page 192: Editorial comment in quoted letter (that) is in parentheses and not square brackets as has been used elsewhere in book. Amended to square brackets.

MISCELLANEOUS TOC created for this text (no TOC in the original book)

Page 117: "...I caused shoot him dead;" checks out against original book. Left as is.

Index: Page reference for Whigs, origin of name fixed to page 23 (footnote 8); no note on page 82 (original reference in book).
