Comments

1. Lockhart inserts "Lord Lovats Frazers also being very tardy"
2. There are two insertions and marginal footnotes in the Journal. Lockhart picks up the sense of both these alterations. He incorporates the insert and then picks up the lower marginal note and inserts in the correct place so that it reads:. "six Highland regiments by Kelso, passed the River Tweed and came to Gedburgh, from whence crossing the border he was met by the other column within two miles of Carlisle."
3. However Lockhart also omits the lines: "Nov 8th being Friday, his R. H. entered England & quartered at Riddings all night the 9th. The first column passed the water of Edon at Rockly Rowclif about two in the afternoon & quartered that night in the Villages west from Carlyle. Nixt morning being Sunday the 10th after summoning the Town in vain Carlyle was blockaded on all hands and the cannon were brought up in order to raise a battery yt night but intelligence being come yt Genl Wade was marching towards Carlyle". It is suggested that this omission is simply a mistake in Lockhart. The original journal shows the insertion (correctly dealt with by Lockhart) from the bottom of the page to end with the word "Carlyle". The omitted sentence in Lockhart, which should follow, ends in the word "Carlyle". Lockhart could understandably have skipped the five lines in between completely by accident.
