‘Sketch Book of the North’ (1896)

This is a nice collection of miscellany from George Eyre-Todd made up of short wee stories and anecdotes. This publication was mentioned by the author in an article for ‘Scots Lore‘ referring to Bonnie Prince Charles’ mistress Jeanie Cameron. There appeared to have been some debate as to whether she had returned to Scotland, after following Charles to France, and become a beggar in Edinburgh, as pointed to in this publication, or whether she was the lady of the house, Mount Cameron, as suggested in Ure’s  ‘History of Rutherglen and East-Kilbride.’  It shouldn’t take too long to upload, so I may do that soon.
