1. Lower marginal note (which appears on right hand side of page in Journal): "Whilst our Low Country… " is incorporated in the appropriate place in the Lockhart version, virtually in its entirety three lines from the top of page 40, after "an Interprise".

2. The marginal addition run-on, which occurs after the line drawn on page 40 is reproduced as if the line did not exist in the Lockhart production. In addition to minor editing amendments to this section of text, the Lockhart version contains an addition, namely "which might have been prevented if Lord Cromarty in the Ps service in that country had done his duty. This loss at so criticall a time "

3. Upper marginal note: "Ld G. M. Ld Ogilvy…""may have been an aide memoir within the Journal for use on page 41, which is quoted by Lockhart as… "Our battalions that marched to join those who had been appointed to guard the Spay, were Clanronalds, Ardsheels, together with Pitsligos horse and the French piquets". There is also an earlier mention on page 21 to "Lord Ogilvie and his regiment of foot from the Braes of Angus and to Lord Pitsligo with his good body of horse from the Mearns".
