Recent Meeting
Thursday December 8th
Dr James Grant

It was a pleasure to welcome Dr Grant back to Dunning.
His talk was an insight into politics of government and
of the church in Scotland during the very violent times from
before the 1st Jacobite rising in 1715 and the second in 1745.

He started by reading Agnes Oglivrey's letter to the Duke of
Cumberland pleading for the life of Robert Lyon who was about to be hung,
drawn and quartered. He explained why this was so, why she came to write it,
and why Cumberland took no notice.
