EDITOR'S NOTE

Within the compass of 120 pages it was impossible for me to cover every event in this period. The "Forty Five" itself would have provided enough material to fill a volume of double the size. I have therefore concentrated on the four events which seemed to me most important namely, the Darien scheme, the Union of the Crowns, and the risings of 1715 and 1745. For the rest, I have endeavoured to illustrate, however briefly, the religious, social, and industrial activities of the time. As in my previous volume, I have drawn freely on the invaluable publications of the Scottish Historical Society, and my thanks are also due to Mr. William Cowan for permission to print the extract which appears on p. 29.

J. P. T. GLASGOW, May, 1914 .
