Excerpt from The Scottish Antiquary, or Northern Notes Queries, Vol. 15 The style in which he writes, as well as the length of his reminiscence, persuade us that he is an old man. But the extent to which he indulges in allusions to himself and his former works is probably due in part to the terms of familiar ity in which, as we gather also from him, he stood with the very young man to whom he was writing, and age has created in him no lack in energy, courage, or devotion.

Excerpt from The Scottish Antiquary, or Northern Notes Queries, Vol. 8 Elizabeth of England was unmarried. Her nearest heir was Mary Queen of Scotland, granddaughter of Margaret, daughter of Henry v11. Next came Arabella Stewart, Margaret's great-granddaughter by a second marriage, and after her Katherine Gray, granddaughter of Mary Tudor, Margaret's younger sister. Katherine was wife of John Seymour, Earl of Hertford, and the Seymours would have without doubt resisted the claims of Arabella Stewart, so in England also a war of succession was almost certain. The babe in the cradle was heir to the Crowns of Scotland and of England, and thus both countries had good reason to pray that his life might be spared. The tender thread was not broken, and amongst his descendants are to be found the monarchs, not only of Great Britain, but of all the European States. His descendants in the male line are extinct, but in the female line they abound. The cradle itself, as will be seen, is plain and simple. Had it not a history few save lovers of Old furniture would give it a place of honour, but the history it possesses is unique in the history of nations, and its authenticity is assured by the fact that when removed from his mother's care the royal infant was brought up by the wife Of the Earl of Mar, the hereditary captain of Stirling Castle. Annabella Murray, Countess of Mar, brought up her royal charge at Alloa House and at Stirling Castle, and the cradle has been preserved at Alloa by the Earls Of Mar, her de scendants, together with a child's chair, seated in which we can picture to ourselves the infant Scottish Solomon receiving his first lessons from his pedagogue, George Buchanan, while Gilbert Primrose, from the neighbour ing royal burgh Of Culross, looked after his health, and saw that he took his physic. The collateral descendant of the French Doctor, ' as he was called, is now a Minister of State to the Queen of Scotland and of England (great Britain), the descendant of the babe in the cradle at Alloa.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
