August 15th 1713
All for one...Most of the lairds in Perthshire were strongly Jacobite in sympathy. In both the 1715 and the 1745 rebellions they joined the Stewart forces together with their tenants. One is entitled to wonder whether the tenants were so enthusiastic for the Stewart cause as their masters, whether in fact they were ever even consulted.
The following letter was written by Drummond of Drummond Castle to his tenant in Glenartney.
“See that none of the men of whatever rank of Achunner be absent as you shall be answerable to us and to all the men in good order.”
